Hanoi’s streets are becoming increasingly colourful as traders start transporting and displaying peach flower trees for sale in the run-up to the lunar new year.
Many sellers are already selling peach flowers. The flowers that bloom early can only be displayed for a week, until the Kitchen Gods Day. After that, people may buy another branch for the lunar new year holiday period. Small peach flower branches are especially favoured and sold well.
