Exhibition “Spring of Hanoi” was held by Hanoi Museum in collaboration with the photography club of Hanoi University of Culture. The exhibition introduced about 80 photographs of more than 40 photographers. The photographs showed the unique cultural features of the spring of Hanoi. Through the lens of the photographers, the spring of Hanoi was reflected in a true and emotional way that fully showed the beauty of the nature and people of Hanoi. Such features were cultural heritage and traditional cuisine displayed during Tet, year-end flower markets, or bustling streets when Tet was near, and many more.
