Xem anh phong to
On the 8th day of the first lunar month, people flocked to a unique market in Vu Ban district in the northern province of Nam Dinh province to wish for a prosperous and lucky new year.

The one-a-year spring market displays handicrafts, antiques and modern reproductions, utensils, agricultural tools, and many varieties of ornamental plants.

The most popular thing to buy is the roasted veal. It is considered the essential gift from Vieng market, no matter how high the price.

The cheapest items at Vieng are the flowers and trees, which bring both the buyer and seller happiness and good luck.

From around 2am, deals are done under the light of candles or flash-lights. Deals are agreed quickly as people believe it keeps the luck.

Visitors can then go to local temples and pray for a happy new year.

Vieng market is also a place to relax and meet people. Perhaps lovers will find each other here and have an auspicious future.

Legend has it that Vieng market is linked to Nguyen Minh Khong, who introduced copper casting to the area, so people believe it is good luck to buy something made of copper at Vieng market on the day of the festival.
