Rewarding experiences on Hanoi’s Halloween in 2017

Celebrated on October 31st every year, Halloween is a well-known festival in Western countries with the origin from the ancient Celtic festival Samhain. It is unexplainably believed that on this day the boundary between living and dead is not separated clearly and the skeleton and the head become the symbols of this festival. Therefore, the festival always offers people the weird but exciting feeling.

After a long time, Halloween has been warmly welcomed by many young people in Hanoi. To go through unforgettable Halloween season, in addition to necessary activities such as makeup, trying cuisine, putting ghostly accessories on, many Hanoians themselves gather together in impressive and exciting destinations to welcome Halloween. Let’s join with them to see how Hanoi is on Halloween and how different Halloween in Vietnam is from one in your own country! Explore with: Indochina travel packages

A visit to The Old Quarter and Ma Street is highly recommended.

Before, Ma Street is full of the eerie items, which are sold and bought by many Hanoians to prepare for a memorable day.  The visible items related to ghostly Halloween include evil masks, black clothes, witch hat, pumpkin lantern or something like that. Ma Street suddenly dips itself into the weird color of black and orange. In addition, sellers and buyers all are hustling with their work to make careful preparation for Halloween with family or friends.

At the exact day – 31st October, do not miss the Old Quarter, especially Walking Streets. The vast and spacious place here is where many Halloween activities occur. Coming here, both domestic and foreign people make up and wear eerie clothes. The Old Quarter is overwhelmed with the ghosts, witches or cosplay characters walking along the streets to immerse themselves into the atmosphere. It is funny that you have a chance to see some ghosts are sitting together and drinking beers in Ta Hien Street.  Bring a camera to take photo of the exciting moments here.
