The Hoan Kiem District People’s Committee opened Hang Luoc street traditional flower market and diverse activities at Phung Hung street mural space.

The Hang Luoc flower market is a long-standing famous flower market in Hanoi. It only convenes once a year, opening from the 15th to 30th day of the last month of the lunar calendar. Customers can not only buy flowers and ornamental trees but also antiques and other decorative items at the market, making it a popular address among Hanoians before Tet.

In addition to organising the Tet flower market, Hoan Kiem district's authorities have also organised cultural and art activities in bridge arches along Phung Hung mural street every year since 2018 so that people can feel the elegance and joy surrounding.

The same day, Da Nang Spring Festival was launched by the city’s Department of Industry and Trade with the participation of hundreds of businesses, cooperatives and production facilities.

It aimed to create an ideal space for residents of central Da Nang city to shop for Tet, welcome the Lunar New Year and contribute to stabilising the market as well as promoting production and business

The festival will be held from January 19 to 24 at Danang Exhibition and Convention Centre. It featured more than 150 stalls showcasing One Commune One Product (OCOP) products, regional specialties of provinces and cities including Quang Nam, Bac Ninh, Binh Dinh, Dong Nai, Hai Duong and Ho Chi Minh City./.
