About this photo

Planted all year round in Vietnam, the Chrysanthemum flower is the symbol of a composed and unpretentious lifestyle. Commonly used for a variety of traditional festivals, the golden flowers are blessed during Tết (Vietnamese New Year) and are displayed in people's homes to bring happiness in the future. Chrysanthemums are distinguished by a very strong and bitter aroma. Explore Vietnam on any of Insight Guides' Vietnam itineraries
