Thanks to its geographical location, the Vietnamese capital city of Hanoi witnesses contrastingly different weather conditions during the four seasons of the year. Autumn, from August to November, is seen as the most beautiful time of the year. It is a time of blue skies, a lovely nip in the air, blossoming milk flowers and delicious Hanoi-style rice nuggets sold by vendors on the street side.
The fall season brings a calm and gentle atmosphere to Hanoi which is loved by both locals and tourists alike. People wearing their best, and posing in different corners of the city such as Phan Dinh Phung Street, the West Lake or the Sword Lake area is a familiar sight that one can witness during this season. It is a fantastic feeling indeed to sip a cup of coffee when it is autumn in Hanoi.
