The leaves of loc vung (Barringtonia acutangula) trees on streets of Hanoi have changed to red and yellow, creating an European-like scene.
In the first day of March, many loc vung trees near Hoan Kiem Lake begin shedding their leaves. Before they shed, all of the green leaves turn yellow and red, creating romantic scenery like in Europe.
This is one of the most famous trees in Hanoi.  Every year, after Lunar New Year, the leaves change color very quickly. Within several weeks, the leaves change from green to yellow, and green buds emerge.
Most leaves change colors in autumn whereas loc vung sheds its leaves in spring. Therefore, seeing the red and yellow leaf canopies of loc vung trees, many people think of autumn in Hanoi.
