PSNews-Calligraphers’ street gives HCM citizens the feeling that Tet is so close. Photographers of CAND Online captured several moments featuring the street.

The weather in Ho Chi Minh City is so nice on these days. Yellow apricot blossoms and pink peach blossoms are showing off their beauty on Pham Ngoc Thach street, which makes people feel more joyful and comfortable. That also draws hundreds of young boys and girls to the street, enjoying the beauty of flowers, wallowing in the festive atmosphere or glancing and smiling at a young opposite-sex passer-by.

Various beautiful traditional activities, such as Chinese ink, red papers and parallel sentences for Tet, have reoccupied the modern space.

Foreign tourists are also fascinated to join local youngsters, enjoying blooming flowers and the lively festive atmosphere of the street. Some young boys and girls in Ao Dai (traditional Vietnamese long dress) are coming and going along the street, but others are simply standing silently admiring the beauty of blossoms, all of which makes the street of calligraphers more lively, more bustling and more attractive.
