The tree planting project in Hanoi aims to add greenery and beautify the capital city's landscape.

The project to plant 7,500 bamboo trees and renovate pavements around Truc Bach Lake in Ba Dinh District, Hanoi, has been underway since December 2023. The bamboo trees, which are expected to delight locals and visitors and help beautify the landscape of the West Lake area, have grown lushly after two months of planting.

Thousands of bamboo trees are now growing on the sidewalk around the Truc Bach Lake, creating a funky and unique landscape.
The "bamboo forest" is special in the capital city as the trees are grown in rural areas.
The newly planted bamboo trees are showing signs of healthy growth.
The trees are specially planted, tended, and anchored to remain upright.
The bamboo garden is a favorite stroll for foreign visitors to Hanoi.
They also love to take photos with the bamboo forest in the background.
... And even jog between rows of green bamboo trees.
As well as the bamboo, there are also many stone benches where visitors can rest and admire the beautiful scenery.
The stunning scenery is captured from below.
It is hoped that the new attractive miniature 'bamboo forests' will be a major draw for visitors to the area.
