Nguyễn Huệ Street, The Founder Of Tây Sơn Dynasty, Covered With Flowers For Tết

Launched in the 2004 Lunar New Year or Tet holiday, the Nguyen Hue flower road has become the Tet culture in Saigon and is an indispensable activity in the city each Tet. The Nguyen Hue flower road appeared for the first time in 2004, as a continuation of the flower market of Nguyen Hue which had existed for more than half a century in Saigon.

With the theme “Vietnam’s Heart,” the road this year highlights the idea of popularity and the country’s position. The flower road will open for the public from February 7 to 13.

The flower street is now ready to welcome visitors from the evening of February 7.
