These miniatures are adorned with patterns resembling dragon scales, highlighting the connection between traditional and modern lifestyles. They create a vibrant atmosphere for the Tet festival.

The flower street of the Year of the Dragon also features a miniature green rice field and a space showcasing vegetables and fruits.

Thien An, a resident of District 7, said she and her family wore ao dai (traditional Vietnamese long gown) for a photoshoot along the colorful flower street on its opening day.

The spacious and airy street is a major attraction for visitors.
