Quan Ba flower market.
Even if you have to be quite early (4-5 AM) on the site of this quite unique flower market, for sure you will not get disappointed. This is valid not only for flower lovers but also for "regular" tourists who enjoy to watch local people.
This is Hanoi’s busiest flower market, and it’s supposed to really get going from around 02:00 till 06:00, You’ll genuinely be amazed at the volume of flowers being packed onto single motorbikes. We spied sunflowers, roses, chrysanthemums, orchids, gerberas, lilies, hydrangeas and various kinds of greenery being sold at the market. A couple of stalls sell arrangements, but mostly the same kind of flower is sold by the bundle. The single globes used to illuminate the market add to the atmosphere.
