Quang Ba Flower Market, Hanoi Overview

The Quang Ba Flower Market is a picturesque wholesale flower market in Hanoi. Every night, trucks from Da Lat bring in masses of colorful flowers like sunflowers, roses, tulips, orchids, lilies among many others. The local vendors buy from the truck and sell it to individual buyers. This night market is perfect for a photographer wanting to capture a street illuminated with colorful flowers.

Quang Ba flower market is the place you should visit to get an authentic experience of Hanoi. This place is the actual and factual representation of Hanoi, its people, and some amazing Vietnamese flower species. The Quang Ba flower market is functional at very early hours and being a tourist can be quiet tough on your comfort zone. The market is most bustling during 2am - 4am, being the time when the suppliers and the wholesalers make deals here. While the tourist crowd is less here, especially at these hours, it is still a must visit in Hanoi because here you can get captivated by the environment and live like the locals, watch them load a mere motorcycle with tons of flowers, observe them bargain and the most important, you can shop without drilling a hole in your pocket, as all the prices are at wholesale rate. This place is a paradise for street and portrait photographers.

The market consists of two important corridors, with rows of shops on either sides. The right side is lined with street food stalls. The flower shops are illuminated by low power lights, that gives an aesthetic dimmed feel to the atmosphere but challenges the lens bearers.
