The sun shines through ancient sau (dracontomelum) trees on Phan Dinh Phung Street in Hanoi. Most dracontomelum trees on Phan Dinh Phung Street are centuries old. The street is also home to the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long, a UNESCO world heritage site, and rows of villas built during French colonial times.

Autumn is also an occasion for people to wear the ao dai, Vietnam’s national costume, on the streets for photos. According to locals, Phan Dinh Phung Street is crowded with people coming to take photos from the beginning of October as the dracontomelum trees start shedding their leaves. Over the past two weekends several hundred people have come to take pictures since 7 a.m.

Nguyen Thanh Thuy, 61, who has lived in Europe for 35 years, is in Vietnam for a visit. Before the pandemic she would usually visit in October every year to see friends and experience the cool of autumn season, but was unable to do so during the two years of the pandemic. “Taking photos in an ao dai in the early morning brings me memories of my school life at Phan Dinh Phung High School,” she said.
