Vietnam's 3,000km flower-path project takes root, but safety concerns loom

As Vietnam aims to build the longest flower path of its kind in the country, stretching over 3,000km along the North-South railway line, many experts and residents have applauded the plan as a potential tourist draw, though concerns over railway safety have also been raised.

The flower path will feature specific flowers that represent 34 provinces and cities that it passes by, according to Dang Sy Manh, General Director of the Vietnam Railways Corporation, which is in charge of the railway line.

He said that creating the flower path will take place from March 2023 to March 2025, and its budget will be mobilized from the private sector, as the railway sector is struggling.

Many routes in the North-South railway have been voted the world’s most beautiful, with many stations bearing significant historical and cultural values, he said.
