Street of calligraphers opened in HCM City

Pho Ong do, a street lined with calligraphers’ stands, has been opened at the HCMC Youth Cultural House at the corner of Nguyen Thi Minh Khai and Pham Ngoc Thach streets in District 1.

This is a traditional event that normally takes place just a couple of weeks before the Lunar New Year (Tet), the country’s longest and biggest annual holiday.

Calligraphers in traditional Vietnamese costumes showcase their calligraphy skills and works using Chinese ink on paper, rocks, wood or bamboo. They write words or phrases that mean good luck, health, peace or prosperity at guests’ request.

In addition to watching calligraphers create their artworks on the spot, visitors come to the event to buy wooden carvings and portrait paintings, take photos, or take part in cultural and fun activities.
