Some main streets in the inner-city area such as Trang Tien, Doc Lap, Hoang Van Thu, Hung Vuong and Thanh Nien are also on the list with displays of flower baskets, flags and lighting systems.

Flower decoration symbolising 12 animals of the lunar zodiac will be set up at Thong Nhat Park.

The Construction Department has asked localities to ensure the work is done quickly. The decorations will be maintained from January 22 to February 4.

Hanoi will set off fireworks at 30 venues in all local districts at the coming Tet Holiday. Each firework display will last for 15 minutes starting as the clock hits midnight on January 25, marking the beginning of the Lunar New Year.
