Orchids grow bountifully and beautifully in the Vietnamese climate. Many stands sprang up around Hanoi selling this common Tet gift.

Another important Tet decoration is blossoming peach and cherry branches (or sometimes whole trees). These are also sold in lots all over the city.

For the kids, fancy balloons are popular and available on every corner during Tet.
Finally, I caught this cool picture of a bicyclist selling Tet tree ornaments.
