Hanoi strewn with sua flowers

The sua trees are blossoming on the streets of Hanoi, exposing their white flowers, creating an impressive natural beauty of the capital city.

These flowers blossoms come every March, emitting an intoxicating fragrance, heralding the season to come.

Moving beneath canopies of leaves that are dyed white, it is worth taking a moment to look up to catch the extravagant and temporary of Hanoi’s sua flowers.

It’s not only March. Every time of year in the capital city of Vietnam exposes a new flower; a reminder of nature with her changing seasons.

The Botanical Gardens are full of sua trees planted long ago, along with the streets of Thanh Nien, Tran Hung Dao, Phan Dinh Phung, Hoang Dieu, and even in the old quarter.
