The five-day festival is taking place as part of activities aimed at celebrating the 48th anniversary of the Liberation of South Vietnam and National Reunification Day on April 30, as well as International Labour Day on May 1.
The event attracted the participation of 200 units, featuring around 29,000 orchid branches and pots in the process.
Upon addressing the opening ceremony, Vo Van Hoan, vice chairman of the municipal People’s Committee, outlined that through the festival the southern city wants to promote orchid varieties with high economic value to both local and international visitors.
At the festival, visitors will be able to marvel at miniature landscapes featuring iconic images from across the country, particularly the stunning scenery of the river and traditional craft villages in Cu Chi District – home to the largest orchid planting area in Ho Chi Minh City.
The inaugural Orchid Festival of 2019 was a momentous occasion, with orchid brands and products from all over the world being honored.
