The romantic reed field adorns Hanoi’s iconic Long Bien Bridge
The reed bed blankets the Red River’s alluvial ground under Long Bien Bridge, creating a romantic beauty for Hanoi in every late autumn.
The interval between early November and the end of December is the time when thousands of tiny reed flowers under Long Bien Bridge bloom, turning this place into a “photo-taking paradise” for nature lovers.
Dawn is the best time of the day to photograph the reeds. When warmed by the sun rays, the dewdrops on the reeds become crystal clear, glittering under the sunlight

Different from other reeds that usually have white color, Red River’s reeds are dark yellow. The reeds grow so high that it reaches an adult’s chest and gather in large patches in the middle of the Red River.
