Strolling on the flower street in the Lunar New Year is one of indispensable activities in Ho Chi Minh City. The fragrant flowers bloom brightly in the spring atmosphere. On the flower street, all vehicles are prohibited, so the pedestrians can take a stroll while enjoying the beautiful flowers along the streets.
I went to the flower street with my high school friend. The flower street takes place on Ham Nghi street and it stretches from Pho Duc Chinh Street near Ben Thanh Market to Ho Tung Mau Street. Therefore, it took us about nearly 2 hours to enjoy the 580-metre flower road. The street features three main topics which are Vietnam’s Magnanimity, Vietnamese Identity and Glory Vietnam.
The best thing I like about this flower road is the metro on the floral railway. This image of metro is very important because we are building the first metro in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. I am looking forward to taking the real metro in the near future. The long yellow metro on the flower street is so beautiful and it brightens up the flower garden. I love the idea of decorating the railway with a lot of colourful flowers. This is also the part of the road that a lot of people bustled to take photos. We had to wait for our turns to take the photo with the floral metro.
I also love this giant bottle couple. The pink bride bottle is very cute with rosy cheeks while the blue groom bottle smiles lovely.
The floral box mails in the flower garden are also a highlight of this flower road. The way they place the floral box mails is very artistic and elegant.
A chain of doors decorated with flowers make a strong impression on me. The wooden and bamboo doors mix well with the fresh orchids and other bright flowers.
Another part of the flower street that many people take photos is the giant flower stream. It stands out and brightens up the floral road. The flower stream is made of different beautiful flowers. There are such many people wanting to take photos with this stream that it becomes difficult to find space to take photos.
Today I put on a pink shirt, so I love to take photos with the pink and purple paper flowers.
Finally is the corner of Vietnam countryside. We can see the bamboo house with a lot of Vietnamese traditional cooking stuffs. For example, there are a lot of Pipkins (earthenware cooking pots) that we often use to cook fish. Many corns are hung on the windows. There are also green sticky rice cakes (Banh chung, banh giay) which are Vietnamese traditional foods in the lunar new year.
We really enjoy the flower road this year.
