NDO - There was as light chill to the air as rain drizzled down in the early morning of the first day of Lunar New Year. On some of the deserted streets around Hanoi, a few people ventured out for a stroll to enjoy the peaceful and pleasant atmosphere.

The street is quiet and deserted as some people go out in the morning.

On the corner of a street in the Old Quarter, there are no noisy scenes of usual city life, the silence is only broken occasionally by the sound of some vendors.

A few people ride bicycles around Hoan Kiem Lake as they enjoy the early morning air.

At 7am, Hang Ngang Street is still wide and empty.

Tourists take a cyclo on a sightseeing tour.

None of the usual crowded and noisy scenes of trade at Dong Xuan market.

The streets are filled with the red and gold starred national flags.

Peach flowers blossom in a bright pink flourish for spring.
