HCM City (VNA)
-  A flower street will be opened on Nguyen Hue pedestrian street in Ho Chi Minh City from February 13 – 19 to welcome the traditional Lunar New Year (Tet) 2018.

The annual event, themed “Khat vong vuon xa” (aspiration for further development), aims to present a city of development and integration, yet preserving its traditional culture.

The 720 metre-long flower street will be decorated with different flowers following three sub-themes of the spring in the city, integration and development, and looking forward to the future.

Meanwhile, the area around the statue of late President Ho Chi Minh will be covered with yellow apricot (a typical flower during Tet in the south) and peach (a typical flower during Tet in the north).

Imitations of domestic dogs will be on display at the welcome gate as sacred animals in the Year of the Dog, while real visual photo-shooting technology will serve visitors.

This is the 15th version of the flower street to celebrate the traditional Lunar New Year in the city.-VNA
