Dozens of workers are racing against time to complete construction of Nguyen Hue Flower Street in preparation for the opening ceremony slated for next Tuesday (the 28th of the 12th lunar month).

While the flower street is under construction, all vehicles and sightseeing tours around Nguyen Hue pedestrian street are restricted to guarantee safety for visitors and ensure the project can be done on time.

A 32-year-old worker from the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh told the Daily on the morning of February 8 that the opening of the flower street has only five days to go, so most workers are working from dawn to dusk to stick with the schedule.

“The flower street is always crowded with tourists on the opening day as throngs of people always wait there several hours prior to the opening hour,” he added.

Themed “An aspiration to a new height”, the flower street is expected to stretch 720 meters from the City Hall to Ton Duc Thang Street along the Saigon River, with three main areas namely “Spring in the city”, “Integration and Development” and “Reaching to the future”.

This is the 15th consecutive year that Saigontourist Holding Company, the nation’s leading tourism services provider, has been picked to organize the landmark flower street.

Construction of the flower street begins on January 29 and lasts 15 days
