Flower Market

The Tet flower season has opened, flowers are appearing everywhere on the street. For bargains, the best place is Nhat Tan. There are thousands of flowers that will amaze you, there are so many types that you may never have seen in your life. Lots of orchids from China, so many Mai (Morning flowers), Đào (cherry blossoms), roses and so many more. Come to this place and you will feel like you are in a valley full of colourful flowers.

Nhat Tan is one of the most famous places in Viet Nam for flowers, where there are special and rare flowers that other places don't have. This place is impressive not only because of the colour and amazing flowers, but also because of the friendly people who sell and explain about the flowers, where they come from and how to take care of them.

In addition to all the flowers at this time of the year, there is lots of stuff on sale for Tet (Vietnamese new year). Lots of different kinds of pots, statues of Buddha and all kinds of trees, including cumquats.

Thank you for your excellent descriptive of Vietnamese culture. I love and miss all of the food that you have shown on the post, and beautiful images throughout Viet Nam. I will be coming home one day.

Thanks again, keep up the great work!
