Nhat Tan is one the biggest and most well-known flower gardens in Hanoi as there are imposing lines of trees and ornamental plants grown along the Red River banks. 

Just around two weeks before Tet, the weather turned warm, leading to the early bloom of peach flowers, attracting numerous visitors to the location. Without buying ticket but visitors need authorization from the owners to enter the flower garden and they could take photos as long as they keep the flower branches undamaged.

The street attracts hundreds of visitors daily who come to take photos prior to Tet celebrations. 

Before the mid-Autumn festival 2019, the street was decorated with hanging lanterns to creating lots of settings for photo shootings. On Tet, the street is closed to traffic for the flower market. Therefore, besides taking photos with murals, visitors also have snapshots with peach blossoms and kumquat trees.

There are some booths in the roadbed selling traditional products namely weaves, ceramic, calligraphy among others.
