NDO – Only less than 2km from downtown Hanoi, the Red River’s Bai Giua (Middle Bank) – a green oasis plain in Long Bien district, has long been a popular destination for those who want to discover a different Hanoi of peace and serenity.

From mid-November, the middle plain transforms into a picturesque scene of white reeds in full bloom. Hanoi at the beginning of the chilly winter with golden sunshine and light winds dramatically changes the atmosphere of the bustling city. This is also the time when Hanoian girls and tourists often pose for photographs with the graceful flowers.
