Young people in Hanoi have been flocking to gardens on the outskirts of the city to witness the beauty of blooming canola flowers.
Terraces in Hanoi’s suburbs have been filled with the delightful yellow blooms as winter enters the region, attracting local youths to capture stunning photos of the view.
Popular destinations to enjoy the distinctive scenes are Phu Dong Village, Yen Vien Field, and Trau Quy Town, in the outlying Gia Lam District.
It’s also a fruitful time of year for local farmers as they earn extra cash from daily visitors.
Owners of canola fields typically charge each visitor VND15,000 (US$0.66) to sightsee and take photo’s in their locations.
According to Nguyen Thi Nghia, a resident of Trau Quy Town, most visitors come to see her canola terrace.
“The canola flowers bloom in late November and early December each year, and usually last for two to three weeks,” Nghia said. “A canola plant takes about three months to blossom.”
Dam Thi Hue, a student at Thuong Mai University, said the canola fields are 30 minutes away from her school.
“My friends and I have taken a lot of pictures. The scenery is so beautiful!” she said with delight.
