Whenever the Mid-Autumn Festival arrives, the area encompassing the junction of Tran Hung Dao - Luong Nhu Hoc are brightened by colourful decorations and lanterns, attracting hundreds of people who go to the street to sightseeing or take photos.

This year, hand-made and paper lanterns are more popular than modern alternatives. The area is often packed with people and the number of visitors only falls after 10 pm.

Families with small children visit to capture precious childhood moments.

Some photos of the area:
