The Nguyen Hue Flower Street is scheduled to open from February 13 to 19 to mark the Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday.

This Lunar New Year, the Year of the Dog, begins on February 16, but preparation and celebration often takes place during the week before and after the date.

Stretching a total of 720 meters, the flower street is divided into three sections with three different themes, namely ‘Spring In the City,’ ‘Integration and Development,’ and ‘Reach Out to the Future.’

Each part is designed with different decorations but they are all highlighted by images and figures of the dog.

The Phu Quoc Ridgeback, a breed of dog native to Vietnam’s southern Phu Quoc Island, is chosen as the mascot of this year’s flower street.

The dog breed is best known for its athletic abilities, extreme loyalty, loving nature, and natural obedience.

A special corner is also set up to honor the country’s fishery sector.
