VietNamNet Bridge – Flower gardens in the Nhat Tan village, Hanoi, have suddenly turned into natural parks with many ornaments and all sorts of brightly colored flowers. Young people flock to these gardens to pose for photos, though they have to pay VND20,000 ($1) a visit.

One of the “royal gardens” in the peach flower village of Nhat Tan (Tay Ho district) - only a few hundred meters from the Red River. In the last days of the year, this place is always crowded with young people who come to relax and pose for photos.

But to be in the garden, each person must pay VND20,000 for the garden’s owner.

Nhat Tan peach flowers do not bloom yet but the garden owner decorates his garden with other trees to create a spring atmosphere.

Many people are surprised when a traditional peach flower garden has become a “park.”

Ms. Le Thi Hoa, a flower grower in the village, said this service was formed last year to serve the youngster but this year it is on a larger scale. "It is estimated that every day the gardener earns from a few million to tens of millions dong (several hundreds of USD) from this service," said Hoa.

The favorite flowers of the youth are present in the garden, but many of them are artificial flowers such as apricot, plum, peach...

The "royal garden" has many props for photography service for couples. The fee for this service is VND100,000 ($5).
