Tet flower street to welcome Year of the Tiger


Nguyen Hue Boulevard will once again be transformed into Ho Chi Minh City’s Flower Street for the coming Lunar New Year.

An ocean of flowers, including apricot blossoms, the southern region’s traditional Tet flower, and bonsai will be brought in from different regions of Vietnam to flood the avenue from February 11 to 16.

Fresh flowers from the resort town of Da Lat, Vietnam’s premier horticultural hotspot, and major flower-growing areas in the Mekong Delta will also adorn the road for 800 meters.

Bamboo, mangrove trees and rocks will be used to create jungle and mountain landscapes playing home to bronze tiger statues with wood trimmings in celebration of the coming Year of the Tiger.

As the first day of this Lunar New Year falls on Valentine’s Day, the Nguyen Hue Flower Street will also feature two mammoth hearts made of flowers.

The flower display will include recreations of tradition Vietnamese countryside villages amid stacks of yellow straw, rice fields, and storks.
