Owner description: This night market on the edge of West Lake starts up around 2 a.m., when wholesalers arrive to claim their spots with piles of roses and chrysanthemums, and lasts until sunrise. Quang Ba is especially worth a visit during Tet, when flowers are needed for the many new year's celebrations.

Had heard about the flower market and after seeing the flower vendors on cycles in the streets just had to visit the market.

I was warned of I starting early but also wanted my full nights sleep so took a taxi from the hotel to reach the market around 6:00 AM.

It was a riot of colors and flowers of every type some being sold from stalls others being sold from the back of two wheelers.

It's just a treat to walk through and admire the stalls and the sales. Could not walk away without buying a bunch of flowers although most of the negotiations is with sign language.

Honest sellers as I could have been ripped off, but was not.

A must visit to feel a normal day of life in the Vietnamese life.

A special place for any flower lover. Some may not be able to brave the early mornings. If it does not appeal to you find where they sell arangements in the city.

A must visit market for flower lovers. Fresh flowers with all sorts of varieties. I just love them all. Most of the flowers sold are still in close buds. They last longer. Pick the lilies, orchids and daisies. They are just too pretty.

I work with Photo Journalist from Hanoi and we always visit the market on my visits to Hanoi. I take many pictures and the Vietnamese do not seem to mind. Early am 5 or 6 is best time to see the action.

It is very enjoyable if you come to this flower market at midnight. Surrounded by colors and nice smell, as well as locals wandering around with flowers or food.
If you know Vietnamese or come with a local, you would understand how interesting the market operates every night. This place is not limited to buying cheap flowers, but a chance to get a glimpse of how important flowers are in Hanoi people's daily life.
