Situated in Quang Ba Ward, Tay Ho District, Hanoi, Quang Ba Flower Market stands as one of the city’s oldest night flower markets. When Hanoi sleeps, the market comes alive, typically opening at midnight and operating until early morning.

During major holidays like Vietnamese Tet, Valentine’s Day, and International Women’s Day, the market burgeons with activity, attracting a sizable influx of customers. Its visitors include not only flower traders but also local flower enthusiasts and tourists alike.

The Quang Ba flower market offers a diverse range of flowers, from vibrant daisies and cherry blossoms to elegant roses, orchids, and sunflowers. These blooms are supplied by gardeners from nearby areas such as Tay Tuu village, Dong Anh, Me Linh district on the outskirts of Hanoi, and even imports.

The market is a popular destination for local flower enthusiasts and expatriates in search of floral beauty. By transforming the Quang Ba flower market into a nocturnal tourism spot, Hanoi’s distinct culture will be showcased to international tourists, as stated by the city’s tourism department.

Three other potential tourist attractions that are being considered for Hanoi’s night tours are 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 come to Quang Ba Flower Market not only to purchase flowers but also to admire these exquisite creations, relax, and capture beautiful photos.
