This night market on the edge of West Lake starts up around 2 a.m., when wholesalers arrive to claim their spots with piles of roses and chrysanthemums, and lasts until sunrise. Quang Ba is especially worth a visit during Tet, when flowers are needed for the many new year's celebrations.

Explosion of colors, fragrances and beauty!!

Fabulous flower market!! Vietnamese love flowers and the selection at this market is always great. Best to visit very early, when the market is most energized.

I took a tour of this place and it was very nicely done. I thought I was going to be pushed and shoved but in the chaos, there was order. I got plenty of pics and I thought I wouldn't enjoy the experience. I was mistaken. I can't really explain why it was so nice but I mean you're among... More

I love to get up early and visit markets. There is something magical in watching stall holders set up and you arrive before all the other visitors. I'd never been to a flower market, and this was first opportunity, to do so, so when our guide said he'd pick us up at 9.30am I was disappointed. The decision was made,... More

I made the mistake of going to late the first few times. If you really need something fresh / specific you need to go 6 -7ish. After that most of the flowers are packed on bikes and the bike ladies then go through the neighborhoods to sell their goods. But on occasion I found 11AM to be the perfect time... More

Having seen a thousand fruit and veg markets I opted for the flower market tour. Very difficult to get good photographs due to the early morning darkness and most flowers wrapped in plastic.

Young and old will like the multitude of colors and varieties. Be prepared to haggle a bit and walk away. HOWEVER looking at my living and the time effort and their living conditions I am fully prepared to pay their price. Considering roses in the USA are triple what they are asking I have no problems. If you like to,... More

This flower market is about few km from the Old Quarter and close to West lake water park, it is frequented by both whole sale and retail people. Open so early in the morning till late afternoon, this local market offer a plenty chances of photo especially a month before Tet holiday.
