When it comes to a garden of colour and beauty, there’s no beating about the bush, Hanoi is one of the most beautiful places to visit throughout your Vietnam Holiday Packages. The capital city is highly traditional, so much of the elegance has not been lost due to modernisation, something which is apparent with many other cities. By the month of October, the leaves will have adopted a red or yellow tone and many will have already congregated on the ground to collectively paint a stunning collage of colour across the entire city. Sesame, Orchid and Milk flowers compliment this patterned surface wonderfully and with temperatures of roughly 25 degrees, it is neither too hot or too cold. One of the most pleasant things about visiting Hanoi in autumn during your Vietnam tour is that your day will always be aired by the occasional gust of wind, perfect for that refreshing sentiment.
Enjoy a walk around Hoan Kiem lake and feel the romance in the air as you watch couples stroll gracefully over the same leaves you tread yourself. The Vong Thi Pagoda is host to a festival during this month too, allowing you to witness traditional Vietnamese folksong and a collection of other performances, sidelined by street food stalls and a variety of crafts merchants. Many of the streets in this neighbourhood are brought to life with stunning star shaped lanterns and the smiles of children as they dance and devour sweet snacks. You could even make yourself feel right at home during this part of your Vietnam Tour by purchasing a few moon cakes and finding a place to perch while you embrace the festivities. Your Vietnam Travel is happy to assist you and offer you plenty of other ways to enjoy autumn in Hanoi.
