Stunning Blossoms at Quang Ba Flower Market to Celebrate Vietnamese Women’s Day

On Vietnamese Women's Day, October 20th, Hanoi's biggest flower wholesale market bustles with activity as buyers and sellers gather.


As always, the Quang Ba Flower Market is bustling during holidays, particularly on Vietnamese Women’s Day.

While the entire city of Hanoi is asleep, the Quang Ba flower market is alive with activity as people come to buy flowers.
On the night before this special day, the market attracts a crowd of people who come to buy flowers or simply enjoy the lively atmosphere.

There are hundreds of flower species available, including colorful daisies, cherry blossoms, roses, orchids, and sunflowers.
These flowers are sourced from nearby areas such as Tay Tuu, Dong Anh, Me Linh District of Hanoi, as well as from China.
According to Nguyen Thi Thuy, a seller at the Quang Ba flower market, roses are the most popular choice this year.
Rose bouquets are beautifully adorned, some even featuring LED lights.
The price of flowers is also two to three times higher than usual, with roses priced at around VND10,000 (USD 0.5) per rose and VND300,000 (USD 15) per bundle.
However, due to the economic downturn, the purchasing power this year is lower compared to previous years.
The Quang Ba night flower market usually opens at 8 p.m. and closes at dawn the next day.
Many young people not only come to the market to buy flowers, but also to admire these beautiful creations, relax, and take stunning photos.
