Vietnamese people are spending millions of dong on gilded tigers, given as gifts when the Lunar New Year is approaching.

When reporting on this interesting trend, the AFP news agency also said that the Tet holiday is the most important event of the year in Vietnam. This is also an opportunity for people to give gifts to relatives and business partners.

With the New Year of the Tiger starting on February 1, many people have decided to give a gilded tiger, with a very high price, as a gift.

Thousands of 24k gold-plated tigers have been sold at many high-end gift shops in Hanoi, with prices ranging from $300 to $3,000 each./.
