The flowers are in full bloom for spring in time for the biggest holiday of the year.
The bright flowers are matched by the smiles on locals’ faces as visitors flock in.
My Tan commune, the largest flower village in Nam Dinh province, has about 600 farmers working on more than 200ha. Thanks to rising demand, many have expanded their cultivation areas and can earn 200-250 million VND (8,500-10,600 USD) per season.
The flowers are the main source of income for local farmers.
My Tan commune is located by the Hong (Red) River, so the land is fed by the river alluvium. This produces more vivid colours than flowers grown in other areas.
