Flower Street 2016

Last year, I brought my kids in tow to the Flower Street which is part of the Tet celebration. They were not really happy. Boys!

And this year, am not sure if I can bring them again so I decided to take a walk along Nguyen Hue and see what the decors are like this year.

It’s the Year of the Monkey so as expected, there were lots of monkeys —

I just did a quick walk around the street.

The Flower Street will be officially open tonight at 7pm until February 12. I can already imagine the crowd. So it’s a treat to see this place empty.

Although it’s still prettily designed, it’s not as grandiose as in previous years.

I am still dreaming fitting into an ao dai and having my photo taken here like the folks do during this holiday.

So if you’re not going out of the city this Tet, drop by Nguyen Hue!

Chuc mung nam moi!
