Illumination lights up Hanoi on millennium anniversary

Hanoi on the eve of its millennium anniversary is sparkling with fanciful illumination along main streets in the inner city and key routes in the suburbs. Tourists and local people alike flock to Hoan Kiem Lake which has been decorated with thousands of electric lights around it as well as on its water surface.

The Trang Tien Street is decorated by lights shaped into the form of flamingo.

Along Dien Bien Phu street, which runs to the Ba Dinh Square, youth gather to take photos of each other posing under lotus-shaped lanterns and big golden starts of lights.

According to Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Van Khoi, the lighting and decoration along the main streets and central areas in celebration of the capital city’s millennium anniversary all focus on motifs reflecting 1,000-year Thang Long-Hanoi such as flying dragons, the Temple of Literature, pigeon, lotus and other flowers .

The illumination will be on all nights from September 25 to October 15.
