Hanoians are excited to visit and enjoy the spring atmosphere at flower street Home Hanoi Xuan 2021. Taking inspiration from the beautiful countryside with beautiful flowers and lush grass, the street brings a peaceful and warm space for visitors to experience the traditional Tet in Hanoi.

Leading the entire flower street of Home Hanoi Xuan is a cluster of local flowers stretching like colourful rivers meandering, glistening with thatched roofs with yellow straw mounds, banana bushes, sugar cane mops, and mustard flowers, gourd truss, a corn field, and fruit orchards. Ben Xuan Area recreates a river with rustic bamboo bridge, water wheel, and flower boats to create a space full of spring.

At the end of the road, Xuan field awaits with sugar cane, cornfields, paddy fields, and vegetable garden, bringing the most authentic experience of the countryside. In the street, there are also swings, bicycle, monkey bridge, village well, water wheel, and scarecrow for visitors to capture the beautiful moments of spring at Splendora.
