Lunar New Year festivities held at Metropole Hanoi

Hanoians have a chance to enjoy a traditional Vietnamese market of the Tet lunar new year in open-air courtyard at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi from January 29-31.

The three-day event called Cho Que (countryside market) anchors a multi-faceted approach to the annual observance, which also includes presentation of lucky red envelopes to guests on the first day of the new year, a dragon dance and a Vietnamese banquet par excellence at Spices Garden.

At Cho Que, vendors have set up shops & dressed in traditional garb, to sell food, handicrafts and colourful paintings made of Do paper from Dong Ho village.

Visitors will have an opportunity to take part in Banh chung (Vietnamese Square Sticky Rice Cake) making competition, a children’s drawing contest on traditional conical hat, and others.
