Hoi An is unusually quiet these days, but that does not stop bougainvillea, Rangoon creeper and the rare yellow sua flowers from extending a warm summer welcome.
A bunch of bright pink Surfinia flowers joins the bougainvillea in gracing the corner of Hoang Van Thu and Tran Phu streets as a senior couple walk by.
Hoi An’s ancient ambiance makes it an ideal setting for some young people to get photographed wearing rustic and traditional dresses. They are sitting in the shade of a robust Rangoon creeper with its fragrant blooms. The fragrance gets particularly intense at night.
The yellow sua (dalbergia tonkinesis) trees, which bloom only in warm weather, showers its blooms around a famous banh mi restaurant in Hoi An.
