April 29th is the last working day before the holidays April 30th and May 1st. This year, many people take the opportunity to return to their hometown or travel early due to a long vacation (from April 30 to the end of May 3).
From 5pm, visitors flocked to the My Dinh, Nuoc Ngam and Giap Bat quays… and the Gateway routes were busier than usual.
As noted by PV, on April 30 and May 1, people at the My Dinh bus station flocked to the train station to catch the bus back to their hometown, which was very crowded.
From outside Pham Hung Street outside the bus station gate, people bring their things and rush to the station to catch the bus
Buses and tour buses are waiting in front of the corridor, crowded with people waiting for the bus to depart.

There is a long traffic jam in the Phap Van – Tu Hiep area (Thanh Tri, Hanoi).
The cars drive in 5-6 rows at a very slow speed. In the opposite direction, the vehicles operate normally.
