Hanoi (VNA) – Various kinds of flowers will be arranged at the Ecopark on the outskirts of Hanoi from January 29 to February 1.

This year’s spring festival will feature six roads.

The “fairy” road will tell popular Vietnamese fairy tales through pictures, while the “creative” road will display graffiti by young artists.

The “heritage” road will capture three regions, including “Khue Van Cac” (Khue Van Pavilion) - a unique architectural work and a symbol of present-day Hanoi in the north; “Chua Thien Mu” (Pagoda of the Celestial Lady) – a historic temple in the central city of Hue; and “Cho Ben Thanh” (Ben Thanh Market) in the southern economic hub of Ho Chi Minh City. 

Vietnam’s traditional religious practice of worshipping mother goddesses –recognised by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage – will be highlighted at this “heritage” road.

The “love” road will be a romantic space for couples and the “future” road will introduce new houses.

The “childhood” road will host traditional games for children such as “bit mat bat ga” (catching a chicken while blindfolded), “keo co” (tug of war), “nhay day” (jumping rope), “o an quan” (mandarin square capturing), and other circus performances.

Tickets cost between 30,000-100,000 VND (1.32 – 4.43 USD) each./.
