More than 4,000 flowers and plants will be displayed at the Spring Flower Festival in Ho Chi Minh City as the southern economic hub is getting ready to celebrate the Lunar New Year Tet Festival.
The event will be held at two venues in the city downtown, Tao Dan Park in District 1 and at the corner of Pham Ngoc Thach and Tran Cao Van in District 3, from February 13-24.
Also, 128 markets in parks and along many streets across the city will sell flowers and ornamental plants to display at home during Tet, a must-do for most families in Vietnam.
Three major flower markets will open from February 11, one a week before Tet, at the September 23rd Park, Le Van Tam Park and Gia Dinh Park.
Earlier, the city authorities announced that it will launch the popular annual Flower Street on Ham Nghi Street in the city downtown.
The Flower Street will feature scenes of Vietnamese countryside and this year's mascot, the Goat.
The event is open to the public for free from February 16-22.
