ĐÀ NẴNG — The Spring Newspaper Fair officially opened in Đà Nẵng’s library on Bạch Đằng Street on Monday, displaying special Tết (Lunar New Year) issues of newspapers and magazines.

An exhibition of more than 500 photos, books and calligraphy related to Tết celebrations also opened at the library.

The central coastal city was festooned with thousands of flowers to welcome the Year of the Rooster. A rooster mock-up was created, while colourful fresh flowers were placed for photo ops on Bạch Đằng Street.

A flower display also opened on the west side of the Rồng (Dragon Bridge) on the Hàn River bank.
