Why Quang Ba Flower Market is special ?

The Quang Ba wholesale flower market, the biggest in Hanoi, turns busy when night falls. Visiting the market is always an interesting experience.


The Quang Ba flower market supplies fresh flowers for Hanoi and adjacent provinces. It used to be a makeshift market at Nhat Tan junction, where flower growers from the flower villages of Nhat Tan and Quang An and other communes in Tu Liem district came to sell their flowers.


The Quang Ba flower market has 2 sessions: one from 2AM to 4 AM for wholesalers and another from 4AM to midday for retailers. Flowers are gathered from Hanoi’s outer districts and from as far away as Da Lat in Vietnam’s central highlands.


For many people, staying awake and wandering around the flower market is a good way to enjoy life at night. The masses of colorful flowers on trucks and sales tables recall a familiar rural market session.


The market has become a popular destination for foreign tourists. Anni Bell Miller from the UK said, "It’s the first time I came here. It’s very beautiful. A lot of flowers everywhere. It’s the first time I saw it. Amazing!"


The higher the sun rises the less crowded the market becomes as the flower vendors fan out to different parts of Hanoi and make the city more beautiful and colorful.

Young and old will like the multitude of colors and varieties. Be prepared to haggle a bit and walk away. HOWEVER looking at my living and the time effort and their living conditions I am fully prepared to pay their price. Considering roses in the USA are triple what they are asking I have no problems. If you like to,Mance and color take a look :)

Tới Chợ hoa Quảng Bá đặc biệt vào những dịp lễ tết (valentine, quốc tế phụ nữ, phụ nữ Việt Nam...) hay cuối năm, bạn sẽ được chiêm ngưỡng muôn ngàn bông hoa tươi thắm, từ những hoa bình dị nhất (hoa cúc, hoa mẫu đơn...) đến những bông hoa sang trọng được nhập khẩu (hoa hồng, tuylip...). Với tôi, tôi rất thích đi chợ Quảng Bá vào dịp cuối năm. Thời tiết dịp này rất lạnh nhưng bạn sẽ thấy thích thú vô cùng khi được ngắm những cành đào sắc thắm, nhưng bông lay ơn đỏ rực hay những bông violet mong manh....
