Tay Tuu flower village is considered as the oldest flower village in the suburban area. The village was formed about 10 years ago. The most popular flowers in this area are rose, gerbera and lily.
The most highlighted are red, white, yellow, and other kinds of roses. The village usually sells its flowers at the local market or they are brought to the wholesale market in Quảng Bá. Flowers of Tây Tựu village are very cheap. If it’s not around the Tet holiday, each bunch of Gerbera is only from 7.000 VND to 8.000 VND (about $0.4); each bunch of rose (about 20 flowers) costs around 15.000 VNĐ to 20.000 VNĐ (about $1).
The village is located about 15 kilometers away from Hanoi center. On weekends, this village is very popular with visitors and tourists. Both sides of the road leading into the village are full of yellow and purple daisies.
Unlike other suburban villages, people here have a special bond with their own village. Many young people have chosen to stay and grow flowers, which has proven to be a successful business choice.
Besides flowers, the village also grows several kinds of winter vegetables.
