HCM CITY (VNS) — More than 80 workers are making final preparations on the At Mui Flower Road on Ham Nghi Street for the Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday.
Chiem Thanh Long, director of Binh Quoi Tourist Village, the main contractor of the At Mui Flower Road, said work was proceeding smoothly.
"It was a little strange initially. There is some difference between Nguyen Hue and Ham Nghi streets, so we had to make some adjustments," Long said.
In previous years, the Flower Street was set up on Nguyen Hue Street but it was moved to Ham Nghi because of construction work on a subway project.
Flowers are being transported from Sa Dec, Da Lat and HCM City.
Familiar scenes such as paddy farms, lotus ponds and bamboo hedges have been created along the street.
Besides traditional scenes depicting the countryside, modern items such as product codes and metro lines have also been added. — VNS
