Hanoi in November: white reed and daisy blossoms

Daisies, Mexican sunflowers and other widely loved flowers are blooming in Hanoi in November, when the chilly weather of late fall and early winter prevails.

The "12 flower seasons" of the year make Hanoi a popular tourist destination along with its picturesque attractions and lively streets. November is full of images of white reeds covering the foot of the bridge, daisies sparkling in the morning light, the "wall" of Mexican sunflowers growing over Ba Vi and the rich aroma of milk flowers at the end of the season.

Pure white chrysanthemums

Late fall and early winter in Hanoi are a time of year when daisies are in abundance. It's not uncommon to find daisies for sale in nooks and crannies in late October and early November, when the temperature begins to cool. Early in November, when daisies "go along the street", they immediately become a sought-after flower.

Chrysanthemums used to be an ordinary wildflower with no distinctive aroma, and as a result, few people paid attention to it. But this little blossom has become a beloved and cherished remembrance of the capital.

It's usually a busy time of year when daisy fields and gardens are open to visitors and photographers. Some of the most popular spots for photos are streets like Phan Dinh Phung or Thuy Khue or even the rocky sections of the Red River and Long Bien Flower Garden.

The season of reed blooms 

The wide reed mead at the foot of Long Bien bridge is undoubtedly the most stunning reed meadow in Hanoi. The banks of the Red River are covered in reeds that tower over this lush alluvial soil area.

While other reed meadows wear a light-yellow garb, this one stands out against the rustic and understated backdrop of the fishing hamlet thanks to its boldly reaching stems.

The white reed fields on the side of Ngoc Thuy dike, Red River rock, and Doi Bu (Chuong My) may also be seen by visitors and flower enthusiasts.

Yellow glare of Mexican sunflowers

Wild sunflowers burst into bloom towards the end of October at Ba Vi National Park. The bright yellow blossoms blanket the entire area. Visitors are enchanted by the cold, fresh, blue-tinged ambience and the golden hue of the flowers.

The ideal time to see wild sunflowers in full bloom is at sunrise, when the dew is still on the leaves and the sun is just beginning to rise. Visitors can enjoy the tranquility of nature and the stunning beauty of the one wild sunflower season each year.

Hanoi awash with milk blossoms

In the fall, milk flower blossoms on the streets of Hanoi release a scent that permeates the entire city. Nature makes amends for this flower's lack of color by providing it with a perfume that is unlike any other.

Starting in late September and lasting through December of the solar calendar, milk blossoms often emit their fragrance. This is especially true at the conclusion of the growing season, when the milk flower flavor is at its strongest.
