The most famous "flower paradises" in Vietnam
Hanoi’s flower markets, from ancient to modern
|Hang Luoc flower market.
This market is special because it is located amid the ancient street of Hang Luoc, where people can walk from road to road to purchase flowers. The most beautiful flowers from Hanoi’s suburbs and neighboring areas are available here.
Currently, in terms of size, Hang Luoc flower market has been narrowed but it is still a favorite destination of many people during the Tet holiday. There, people can feel the ancient atmosphere, a taste of Hanoi’s Tet from the old days.

Every Lunar New Year, the market opens from the 23rd to the 30th day of the last month of the year. In addition to fresh flowers, there are also artificial flowers at the market.
Because the market is located in the busy trading area in the old quarter, visitors can also go from this street to others to purchase decorative items.
Starting from the 19th day of the lunar month, people from everywhere bring flowers, plants, seedlings to the Buoi market, which stretches more than 2 km on Hoang Hoa Tham Road.
In the last two market days on the 24th and 29th days of the 12th month of the lunar year, this place becomes a great flower market, which is bustling and crowded from morning until late at night.

|Nhat Tan flower village.
The advantage of this flower road is locating next to the most famous night flower market in Hanoi in Nghi Tam, along with the ancient flower villages of Quang Ba, Quang An and Tu Lien. This is your must-come place every Lunar New Year.
Here, you can buy any kind of flower. From imported flowers to local flowers from all over the country, such as Dalat, Sapa, etc…
Mekong Delta floating flower market
Floating markets are the cultural characteristics of the Mekong Delta. When the New Year comes, this region "blooms" with flowers when hundreds of boats carry a wide variety of flowers from various flower-growing regions.
The most beautiful floating flower markets in the Mekong Delta region are Cai Rang in Can Tho City, Nga Bay in Hau Giang province and Chau Doc in An Giang province.

Sa Dec flower village is the place where tourists can enjoy flowers all year round, especially in the spring.
Flower markets in Saigon
Like Hanoi, Saigon also has many flower markets, with Ho Thi Ky and Go Vap as the most famous.
Ho Thi Ky flower market is the largest in Saigon. It has been held for nearly 30 years, selling flowers from Da Lat, southwestern provinces and flowers imported from countries such as Thailand, Japan, China...
Flowers here are plentiful and the prices are often cheaper than flower shops from 30-50%. You can choose many kinds of flowers here and especially the accessories for making New Year beautiful bouquets.
However, as a wholesale flower market, Ho Thi Ky is not very suitable for visitors because it is not decorated well.
In Saigon, the Go Vap flower village is also very popular. This is the major source of Saigon-origin flowers. The market stretches along Phan Huy Ich and Cay Tram roads.
Da Lat flower market
Da Lat is the city of flowers, where flowers are everywhere. Da Lat Market is also the largest flower market here. Near Tet, the area around the Xuan Huong Lake becomes a forest of flowers, which are in very unique and fancy shapes.
