I'm missing the autumn of Hanoi so much right now... Saying goodbye to the blazing and acrimonious sunshine in the summer, Hanoi steps into the autumn with all the sun shining on each street in early October.
That's the time you know the Autumn has come. Autumn turns Hanoi into a really romantic place, calm and quiet. In the afternoon, if you have time to wander on the street, you can feel the cold zephyr blows and plays with your hair. Or gliding around Hoan Kiem Lake, you will enjoy the ancient view Turtle Tower in the evening dew. Don't be surprised if you see many young couples sitting around the lake to enjoy the view, the breeze, the coolness of autumn and giving a warm hug and kiss to each other. Evening is the time for Milk flower (Hoa Sua) to wake up. Hanoi will be sunk in the sweet and slightly smell which can hit badly the nostalgia of those who have been living far away from homeland. You can only breath Milk flower smell from far away as it might give you a headache if you inhale too deeply.
