The Hang Luoc Flower Market, dating back to the early 20th century, is considered the oldest flower market in the capital. It stretches along Hang Luoc Street and the nearby streets of Hang Ruoi, Hang Chai, Hang Khoai, and the mural section of Phung Hung Street.

This annual market offers traditional Vietnamese flowers and plants for Tet decoration, such as peach blossoms, kumquats, yellow blossoms, and ornamental plants. Additionally, it showcases traditional specialties from Hanoi and nearby areas, including handicrafts, folk paintings, pottery, mosaics, and lacquerware.
