Colorful lantern street in Nha Trang

As usual, prior to Lunar New Year, a stretch of street in front of Thai Nguyen Junior High School (Nha Trang City) is lightened by plenty of red lanterns being displayed to be sold for Tet decoration. Reportedly, some people in Nha Trang started to sell New Year lanterns at this area around 20 years ago. The locals and tourists lovingly call this road the lantern street.
 
Nowadays, there are about ten stalls selling red lanterns at this stretch of street when the Lunar New Year is coming. Many people also choose this place to take souvenir photographs on New Year occasion.
 
Following are some images of the lantern street.
