The beauty and fresh air in Hanoi at night bring pleasure to those who love and have strong attachment to Hanoi. When the city lights up, Hanoians start to enjoy their evening time. In the day time, they are busy with work and life. In the night time, they relax and enjoy themselves with simple things. It is a great feeling when you a bike along familiar Hanoi streets at night. Hanoi by night has its own appeal and beauty to those who love and strongly attach to the capital city.
The West Lake is a romantic image in the multicolor picture of Hanoi. This place offers fresh air, openness and poeticality. It has long been the endless inspiration for poets, writers and musicians with many touching songs, poems. The West Lake is beautiful with the vast blue water, purple crape-myrtle, red flamboyant in summer, silent willow hanging down in winter, sparkling pure morning…The West Lake often arouses different emotions.
Trang Tien ice-cream has long been famous for its special flavor with many generations of Hanoians. Everyone, who once tries Trang Tien ice-cream, will never forget its unique taste, which has kept since 1958. The restaurant is always crowded, especially in summer evenings. People take a long queue to buy ice-cream.
Trang Tien ice-cream is special not only for its unique taste but also for the reason that people eat ice-cream while standing. In the evening, young people often gather at public places to play sports. Skillful movements with high techniques, Music and flexible movements combine in a harmonious way, attracting passers-by. Sports, music and dance are indispensable spiritual food for young people in the evening. They are considered street artists who are together making a unique picture of the city.
Saying goodbye to young people with noisy atmosphere at Ly Thai To Park, we come to visit historical Long Bien Bridge. Long Bien Bridge is also known as a “love bridge”. Only motorcycles and non-motorized vehicles are allowed on this bridge. Young people often come here to get some fresh air and chat. I feel great when standing here and watching the city.
Perhaps the images of roadside shops are so familiar to those who have been to Hanoi. It is the same to me. These shops make the picture of Hanoi more beautiful and lively. Drinking tea at a roadside shop is a distinctive feature of Hanoi. It’s very simple and rustic. Sipping the sour and sweet tea, with a piece of peanut candy and listening to the church bell sound…It is so interesting. Bitter tea, sweet sugar and sour lemon blended in cool water blend to make a drink that cannot be found in other places but Hanoi. No luxurious restaurant. Just some chairs, a small tray to put glasses of iced lemon tea, sunflower seeds and fruits on…It is enough for the friends to start their never-ending story of everything in life. For that reason, lemon tea in Nha Tho Street has become a popular brand for young people.
