Workers are rushing to wrap up preparations for the Lunar New Year (Tet) flower festival at Tao Dan Park in downtown Ho Chi Minh City as the opening is just a couple of days away.

Centered around ‘Spring of the Homeland - Warm Love and Compassion,’ the 2022 Tet Flower Festival will welcome visitors from January 27 to February 6 at Tao Dan Park in District 1, said Le Cong Phuong, director of Ho Chi Minh City Greenery Parks Company.

Residents will not have to pay for admission this year, according to the plan of the municipal People’s Committee.

Tickets to the Tet Flower Festival cost about VND30,000 (US$1.3) in previous years.

As of Sunday, welcome posters and the iron frames of the entrances to the fest had been erected, according to the observation of Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporters.

Employees of Ho Chi Minh City Greenery Parks Company were speeding up the construction and decoration works inside the venue.

A number of flower pots have been added to several areas and more will be brought to the park in the coming days.
