The road is less than a meter wide, but the two sides are covered with vibrant colors, especially near noon, when the flowers are in full bloom.

As the creator of the flower path, Ms. Huynh Thi Thu Huong (46 years old) said that she just planted those because she loves flowers. She had no idea that those flowers would become unexpectedly beautiful when blooming. "Initially, I just planted a few bushes in front of the porch for fun and the flowers just spread out to the field. When realizing that, I planted more flowers on both sides of the road to create a dreamy scene", said Huong, while pulling grasses out of the flower bushes. (Photo: VN Express)
