Tet is the Vietnamese New Year ( Lunar New Year). The celebration lasts for 7 days. Like the Chinese, Lunar New Year is one of the most celebrated holidays.

Few weeks before Tet, vendors begin to appear on the city streets selling kumquats, miniature tangerine trees, hoa dao (flowering peach) and hoa mai that were as much a requisite part of Tet as Christmas trees at Christmas. In Hanoi, flowers are sold every where, but the flower market is at Nhat Tan village which is well-known for the best flowering peach. You can buy flowering peach and kumquat along streets of Nghi Tam, Yen Phu, Au Co or buy directly from the farmers at their flowering gardens along the Red river.
