Hanoi’s Unexpected Serenity on the First Day of Lunar New Year, Year of the Snake

In stark contrast to the usual hustle and bustle of everyday life, the streets of Hanoi on a bright day of the Lunar New Year are unusually calm and peaceful. There is no longer the crowd, the rush, and the noise that typically fills the air.


On the morning of the first day of Tet, Nguyen Chi Thanh street was empty, with no scenes of crowded vehicles during rush hour.

Life seems to slow down, and the streets “take a break” after a busy year.

Trang Tien street (Hoan Kiem, Hanoi) is peaceful on the morning of the first day of the Lunar New Year.

Hanoi residents can comfortably enjoy the spring in beautiful weather.

At Thang Long Bridge, the vehicles entering the city are sparse.

Pham Van Dong Street (Bac Tu Liem, Hanoi) is spacious and clean.

Different from the bustling and hurried daily life, Hanoi streets during Tet are really quiet.

Cau Giay Street is one of the congested streets during peak morning hours. If you are not a frequent passerby, it is likely that you would not recognize this street during Tet.

Dao Tan Street only has a few motorcyclists participating in traffic, contrary to the noise and congestion during the year.

On many streets decorated with banners, bright slogans with the words “Happy New Year”.
