Phu My Hung Flower Street in District 7, Ho Chi Minh City opened to the public on Saturday afternoon, a few days prior to the Lunar New Year festival, or Tet, drawing crowds of revelers.

Throngs of city dwellers and visitors gathered on the street to take selfies and photos, as well as admire various flowers and Tet-themed miniatures before it was officially put in place at 6:00 pm on the same day.

The 700-meter-long flower street, which sprawls on Ton Dat Tien Street, remains open until February 13, or the fourth day of the first lunar month.

These miniatures were emblazoned with patterns resembling dragon scales that highlight the connection between traditional and modern lifestyles, creating a vibrant atmosphere of the Tet festival.

The flower street of the Year of the Dragon is also festooned with a miniature of a green rice field, along with a space showcasing vegetables and fruits.

Thien An, a resident of District 7, said that she and her family donned ao dai (traditional Vietnamese long gown) for photoshoots along the colorful flower street on its opening day.

The airy wide space of the street is a plus to attract visitors.
