Situated in Quang Ba Ward, Tay Ho District, Hanoi, Quang Ba Flower Market is one of the oldest night flower markets in the city. When the rest of Hanoi sleeps, the night market comes alive, usually opening at midnight and operating until the early hours of the next morning.

On the eve of major holidays such as Vietnamese Tet, Valentine’s Day, and International Women’s Day, the market becomes even more vibrant with a surge of customers. The market attracts not only flower traders but also local flower enthusiasts and tourists.

The Quang Ba flower market offers a variety of flowers, including vibrant daisies, cherry blossoms, roses, orchids, and sunflowers. These flowers are sourced from neighboring areas such as Tay Tuu village, Dong Anh, Me Linh district on the outskirts of Hanoi, as well as imported varieties.

The market is a popular destination among local flower enthusiasts and expatriates. Transforming Quang Ba flower market into a night tourism spot will help showcase Hanoi’s distinct culture to foreign tourists, according to the city’s tourism department.

Three other destinations under consideration for Hanoi’s new night tours include the Center for Cultural Performances, Arts, Shopping, Entertainment, and Cuisine at Night in Dong Xuan Commune, Quoc Oai District; the Van Dinh Culinary Culture Center in Quang Phu Cau Incense-making Village, Ung Hoa District; and the night entertainment and souvenir area at My Dinh National Sports Complex in Nam Tu Liem District.

Many young people visit Quang Ba Flower Market not only to purchase flowers, but also to admire these exquisite creations, unwind, and capture beautiful photographs.
