Walking along Hanoi’s streets and besides its lakes in the fall, you will breathe in the beautifully sweet fragrance of milky flowers.The streets with a lot of milky flower trees are Phan Dinh Phung, Hoang Hoa Tham, Quang Trung, Nguyen Du, Nguyen Chi Thanh, Tran Duy Hung, Duy Tan and the campus of the National University.
In the autumn, Hanoi is covered with intense scent of milky flowers.
The scent of milky flowers is soft if planted in moderate density and very strong if planted in high density.
Milk flower trees line the streets, perfuming the night air and creating an area of romance for young couples out on a date. Hanoians say when the milk flowers bloom, it’s the best time to visit the capital city.
