“I have been working here for over 20 years, this year the situation is more difficult than in previous years. Sales fell by almost half from last year due to the health crisis. Fortunately, as the holiday approaches, the situation is improving, there are more customers, ”Mr. Muoi said.

Each stand has its own decoration and only sells a few models of lanterns.
According to small traders, "made in Vietnam" paper lanterns are the most sold, priced at around VND 30000 each. Photo: Vnexpress
