Nothing says, ‘I like you’ like a bouquet of flowers, so how about a stadium of flowers? Welcome to Flower Valley, a vision decked out with millions of blooms intricately and cleverly planted that would make Hieronymus Bosch proud. From the Fall to end of Spring (September to March) the flower valley by the West Lake is the place where thousand of flowers blooming. This is a lotus pond was converted into a flower garden to serve the needs of year-round photography, so you can relax to be in harmony with thousands of cleome flowers in a purple color.

Pack a picnic and disappear into tufts of buckwheat flowers and candy-coloured cosmos. Wine optional. Entry for adults is VND80,000

Manzi recently partnered with Work Room Four, a print shop (as in printmaking) and art space, to host a stellar survey of affordable art at their Old Quarter location. When art openings aren’t happening, this converted French colonial building is home to a café serving alcohol and coffee drinks. When you run out of things to talk about, the gallery’s punchy contemporary art work makes for great conversation starters. Check www.facebook.com/manzihanoi for other information.
