Hanoi Festivals & Events
 
Hanoi is a city of festivals. There is always a reason to celebrate. And, the people of Hanoi know how to celebrate it to the fullest. Most of the festivals are associated with their religious belief and faith. Some festivals are held to usher in the new year or the new season marking the beginning or end of their harvesting time while, some festivals are more like events upholding the traditional and cultural richness of the land and celebrating a past which is glorious with the toil of its people. What is more fascinating is the narrative of the beautiful legends associated with the origin of these festivals. The festivals and events are calendared according to Lunar month. Normally, a lunar month stays longer than the western month of around 30 days.
