4. Phan Dinh Phung street

Phan Dinh Phung street is about 1.5km long. This is the street with the widest sidewalk in Hanoi with two rows of ancient Indochina dragonplum trees shading on the same sidewalk. Every dragonplum season, young people would always come here to record their beautiful images with friends. Because of this romantic and poetic setting, the street of Phan Dinh Phung has been loved by not only the people of the capital but also its passionate visitors.
Phan Dinh Phung street is crowded with traffic, but at night this street brings incredible peace. Under the old trees, you can sit back and reflect on the days that have passed.

5. Long Bien Bridge

At night, from the bridge, you can see the rippling Red River, the lights in the far city or zoom into the distance to see Chuong Duong bridge busy with traffic lights. Even in the cold winter, Long Bien Bridge still attracts a large number of visitors thanks to the vendors selling grilled corn, warm and sweet baked potatoes. Its aromatic fragrance flies far away from a corner of the bridge, blending into the wintry season of winter. 

The most spectacular place to enjoy the sightseeing is in the middle of the bridge. From there you can have an overall look of the capital with the red alluvial river and feel the rhythm of life when Hanoi lights up. With friends and relatives watching Hanoi when the night falls down, sipping a glass of corn juice and chatting with each other on Long Bien Bridge, it will certainly be a simple and extremely valuable thing to do in your time in this special land.

6. Quang Ba flower market

For those who are passionate about flowers, going to Quang Ba flower market in the extremely early morning is a real joy! Not only witnessing the beautiful and gorgeous flowers, there you can also see the busy life pace of Hanoi people. Going to Quang Ba night flower market will give you a very different feelings about a cultural feature of Hanoi. The only light in the market is emanated from the high-pressure light bulbs from above, making the whole market sink in a shimmering and fanciful atmosphere.
