Roads in Hanoi are more crowded and people a little more rushed to prepare for Tet.

Peach blossoms, mai, kumquat trees and bonsais are everywhere while streets such as Hang Ma, Hang Ngang, Hang Dao, and Dong Xuan display lanterns and ornaments.

“I am so excited for Tet! I spent my slot time buying things, it will be too crowded if I go shopping at the weekend or near Tet,” said Ngoc, living in Ba Dinh District.

Below are some snapshots of the Tet spirit in Hanoi:
