The street has been forced to open later than originally planned due to the complicated developments relating to the COVID-19 pandemic situation in Ho Chi Minh City.
Each year sees many people flock to the street with locals keen to celebrate the Lunar New Year, known locally as Tet, with the site now crowded like in previous years.
In line with the Health Ministry’s 5K message of khau trang, facemask, khu khuan, disinfecting, khoang cach, distance, khong tu tap, no gatherings, and khai bao y te, health declarations, all visitors are required to follow relevant precautions.
Vo Thi Kieu Hanh of District 3 says that snapping photos whilst in a face mask is a special thing. Although it’s quite different from previous years, she still feels safe and encouraged others to follow the Health Ministry’s guidelines in an effort to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The flower street opens for visitors from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day and is set to last through to February 15, or the fourth day of the first lunar month.
