Reed grass is one of the winter specialties of the North, each branch is white, soft, gently swaying in the wind, evoking childhood memories. However, few people know that in the middle of Saigon at the end of the year, there is also a romantic reed field, creating a vast and beautiful space next to the busy city.

Through sharing, it is known that this area is located on To Huu Street, the old District 2, now belongs to the city. Thu Duc, HCMC. The land is several hundred square meters wide, underneath is green grass, surrounded by reeds higher than a person’s head, creating a cool green background, everyone wants to dive in and immerse.
The reed flower blooms almost all year round, but to see the reed flower, it has to be winter, at cold times like this to see all its beauty, resilience, and pride. The stem is weak, the leaves are soft, but the flowers are sharp, straight, and tassels attached to the branches like needles.
Folklore tells a story about reed grass, that there was a couple who were hindered because they could not register for each other, had to run away from home and lead each other into a deserted place. Having love, but being poor, the young man had to work far away, leaving his wife at home. That departure did not expect to meet again, the girl who waited patiently until her death turned into a fragile but intensely vital reed.
The couple’s beautiful love turns into white reeds, so lovers, come to the grasslands of District 2 and buy yourself a passionate photo set. Photographer 9X shared, let’s take pictures from 6 am to 8 am and from 15 to 17 pm, at this time it is not too sunny, the light is appropriate, the photos will be very beautiful.
He also added that this is an open field area, few people pass by, so people who come to take photos should remember to pay more attention to security issues. Along To Huu street, there are many reed beaches, especially the intersection with Nguyen Van Kinh and Dang Nhu Hai streets, the road to Kim Cuong island, etc.
The photo of a couple using copper as the background shows the purity of love, the gentle sunlight shines on the hair, the idyllic look where nature is in harmony with the noisy city. Come here on a beautiful weekend, surely all your sadness will disappear, in return it will be a relaxing moment with photos to remember forever.
