The opening ceremony for the flower street was attended by former President Truong Tan Sang and Politburo member and Secretary of Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan.
Themed “Ho Chi Minh City - Steadily moving forward", the Spring Flower Street spans nearly 700 metres of the Nguyen Hue pedestrian street.
The flower street was designed with three main segments with the respective themes of “Spring of heaven and earth, Spring of human love”, “Developed City, Sustainable Faith”, and “Modern City, Taking a step forward”.
