Nguyen Hue Flower Street 2022 received around 350,000 visitors during the nine-day opening, an increase of 440 percent compared to last year. 
The visitors are mostly crowded here in the afternoons and evenings to visit and take photos.

Last night, Nguyen Hue Flower Street for the 2022 Lunar New Year under the theme of “Hometown Spring - Warmth of Love” was officially closed.

This year’s flower street received many compliments from visitors with many impressive miniaturized miniatures and tiger mascots.
