  Hoa Mai, annual Tet flower
by 34N118W

Favorite thing: One of the best times to visit Vietnam are the days leading up to Tet, the lunar new year. The streets are bustling with activity as locals prepare for the holiday. During this time flower markets open up making everything so colorful. A visit to these flower markets will reveal a sea of "Hoa Mai", a beautiful tree that blooms yellow blossoms only during the Tet holiday.
