The area surrounded by Paragon Parkson, Unilever, and Crescent was turned into a flower and cat-themed park, fairgrounds, and flower market. There was a stage as well for the performances every night which began last January 26.
The park was interesting with the different flowers showcased and some odd plants you wouldn’t find in a usual park — like maize and rice!
The kids also enjoyed the playground with swings, a looooong see-saw, and bamboo bridges. My son enjoyed the sandy areas and kept asking me for a shovel! He thought we were in a beach!
We also checked out the bazaar which sold apparel, kitchen equipment, decors, etc. The teen clothes where real cheap! Like 20kVND!
There also is a mini-carnival with kiddie rides like the bump cars, train, an bump boats. Street food was everywhere too!
The flower market was huge and I really wanted to buy some plants like the orchids or cactus. Of course, the usual Tet flowers were available in their yellow glory. 🙂
We left Crescent around 9pm with the place still filling up with people — mostly to catch the on-stage performances.
Tomorrow is Lunar New Year’s Eve and I can’t wait to see the fireworks!
