[Photos] Color and Lights: Tet Trung Thu on D5's Lantern Street

Every fall, District 5’s Luong Nhu Hoc Street becomes a melee of lanterns, kids’ toys and dragon dance paraphernalia ahead of the Mid-Autumn Festival.

This year was certainly no different, with throngs of selfie-taking teens and wide-eyed kids crowding the area’s many brightly lit shops. But while the usual plethora of electronic light-up toys and modern lanterns were on display so, too, were Vietnam’s own glass paper lanterns, which have seen a comeback this year as local artisans rush to fulfill a high number of orders for the traditional handicraft.

Take a look at Saigon’s phố lồng đèn below:
