The country’s largest tray of fruit and cereals has been made for the Lunar New Year (Tet) festival in the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap.

The five-fruit tray, which has five tonnes of fresh fruit, is 14 metres wide and four metres high. It is laid by Tran Van Lam, an artisan living in District No 6 in Ho Chi Minh City , after a month of preparation.

In the middle of the tray is an relief of One-Pillar Pagoda made of cereals. On the each side of the relief are two dragons made of arecas, star apples, coconuts, mangoes, mandarins, longans and grapefruits.

In addition, the tray includes parallel sentences for Tet made of fruits and cereals.

The tray is displayed in front of the Temple of Literature in Cao Lanh city from the first to the third day of the lunar new year./.
