Different from a usual Hanoi, the capital city seemed to become much more quiet and peaceful over Reunification Day and International Labour Day as many residents make visits to their hometowns.
Along the streets, Vietnamese flags marked the Reunification Day and International Labour Day. Hanoi streets are more quiet than usual with no traffic. Several shops were closed for a long holiday in a year.
On the other hand, some public areas like Hoan Kiem Lake, Thu le Zoo and some commercial trade centres (Vincom, Times City, Royal City) were getting more crowded. The same as with centre providing some fun for the kids.
