Vietnam: Exotic flowers boom for Tet

The flower market for Tet is in full swing now. Besides traditional domestic flowers for Tet, such as peach blossoms and kumquat bonsai, there are many kinds of imported flowers for demanding customers.

Most flower shops focus on traditional Tet flowers and orchid bonsai, while some have their own specialties. Sayhoa, a flower shop on Tong Dan Street in downtown Hanoi, has followed a modern European-style flower arrangement.

"From the beginning of the 12th lunar month, we have focused on exotic flower products rather than traditional kinds," Nguyen Thanh Phong, the shop's owner, told Việt Nam News. "We have done some marketing surveys and found out that customers pay more attention to imported flowers for Tet. The demand has risen some 50 percent for this occasion. They want to choose long-lasting flowers," he said.
