Flower market

Tet is when people like going to flower markets trying to find some flowers to decorate their homes. Every house has at least a vase during Tet. I went to the busiest flower market in Hanoi, Tay Ho flower market, although I was presented some beautiful lilies. It took me 45 minutes to get there by motorbike. So crowded in the streets. We walked around the market and took some photos. A wide choice of flowers: orchids were the most expensive. Some pots cost millions of dongs. Whoa, sorry, not for me. Truly, it was so wonderful to be surrounded by flowers.
As I wished, we bought a pot of tulips. There was only stall selling tulips in the market. No many choices. The pot cost a lot of money but not as we expected, some tulips died. Poor us. Anyhow I still have fresh lilies.
