Hanoi buzzes with Tet spirit

The people of Hanoi are eagerly awaiting the auspicious moment of the New Year.

Tet, Vietnam's longest traditional Lunar New Year, is knocking on every family's door and is expected to bring abundant vitality and joy to people.

Leaving behind the hardships and worries of the old year, Hanoians are eagerly welcoming the auspicious moment of the new year with good premonitions.

These days, all the streets of Hanoi are getting a new facelift with the red color of the national flag; pink, yellow, blue of flowers, panels, posters, and decorative lights to welcome the spring of 2024.
