Pink trumpet flowers originate from America, also known as pink bell flowers. The flowers have the same color as cherry blossoms, usually bloom in February and last until June.

This flower blooms for about 3-4 days and then falls, leaving the ground filled with petals that look like pink carpets. The scene becomes even more poetic when the wind suddenly blows through, causing the flowers to fall beautifully.

Admiring the pink trumpet road for the first time, Nguyen Thi Hong Tien, Nga Bay City, Hau Giang (about 25 km away), said that seeing people posting beautiful photos, she decided to come here. ”It takes about 30 minutes from where I live, it’s worth going because the road is romantic and very beautiful.”

Some spend money to hire on-site photographers to preserve beautiful moments in this place known as “the most beautiful street in the West”.

Over the years, this pink trumpet street has become a famous check-in and photo-taking location in Soc Trang province.

From Can Tho City, traveling along National Highway 1A about 50 km, visitors can reach the pink trumpet road. The ideal time to take photos in the morning is usually from 7 to 9 a.m., when the sun is up; afternoon from 4 to 5 p.m., in the late afternoon sunlight.’
