Street lantern gloomy though only 1 week to Autumn
Visit rebooked up, the moon is every chance Luong Nhu Hoc street (District 5., HCMC) filled with colorful lanterns brilliant, diverse models. Also because the houses are hanging lanterns were sold to young people themselves lovingly dubbed "street lanterns" in Saigon. The street is also home to the busiest in the full moon festival in the city. HCM, whether as a half months to the moon but always hundreds of people jostling to set foot in here.
Both streets filled with hanging lanterns sale but no buyers.
We had the opportunity to weekend street lanterns in the air moon day is approaching and seeing sellers sit from morning to noon, but not sold yet lanterns.
Sitting acres amidst hundreds of lanterns are hung, the salesman looked somber said: "The photograph is always more buyers. Sit from morning hours and only exposes girls to take his picture lanterns lend posing for pictures only. some are few buyers lantern support it. "
The enlisted personnel do when no customer lanterns.
The salesman said that this year to sell slower lanterns every year despite improved models. Street lantern at about 30 trade stalls.
According to the vendors, visitors to photograph rather than buy lanterns.
There are many lanterns with beautiful designs, attracting more people to take pictures.
As very few people indifferent to the inevitable lanterns will happen is that people here must transform their business, and like street lantern at risk will no longer exist after a few years. Currently there are some people previously sold lanterns but unmarketable because capital can not recover so he turned to the catering business. Share on buyers gloomy situation in recent days, Ms. Nhan (seller lanterns) for that the main reason may be due to persistent rain Saigon sun day after day, that the children are no longer being parents offer to play street lanterns.
Ms. Nhan said: "Just last encounter rain in Saigon historical way, flooding the sky here, too. The entire afternoon to evening (15/9) all the stalls here are not sold so-ever. The water was much too so people also worry inundation, but did not want to sell. Lanterns earlier reason, after rain it is even more power and industrial equipment. "
Quynh Anh grandmothers sit from morning until late afternoon only sold one lantern.
The few visitors come to buy but can not buy lanterns because the photographer is too long.
According to Ms. Nhan, more rain and flooding also left many damaged lanterns. Heavy damage is still paper lanterns. "My booth this year lanterns sell many more traditional designs and also sell electronic mixed-style lanterns improved to attract buyers. Also because so many beautiful models photographed people to just ask" shared "but did not buy much. Most visitors to this small lanterns buy cheap too," she said Nhan.
Arrivals lantern street at night than the morning bustle but mostly just go to take pictures.
The seller then just stood looking bewildered upon arrival and go ask that little purchase.
By this time, the number of lanterns is still very much there, and just over one week left until the Autumn so most households in this business began to voice concerns. Many seller said they are struggling not know whether to buy lanterns for sale for more diversity or how many sell much.
"If there are many sell that much to make lanterns in his shop less noticeable because only old lanterns on display all the time. And if that does not enter the new form level will calculate a severe loss of purchasing power too poorly. Normally enter new form will be e-lanterns that cost more than traditional lanterns, "Ms. Thanh (family with years of experience selling lanterns) worried.
Sitting quietly in a corner booth lanterns, Nghiem Quynh Anh grandmother (88 years old) said: "On line from morning to afternoon just correct a lantern sold 20,000 VND. I sell here are dozens years, older, always made to descendants sold, sometimes regarded assistants. Trafficking lanterns which saw the visitors take pictures more buyers. On this gloomy scene bored too, partly because of rain This too should be like new. "
Invites hoarse throat but customers still tetchy with lanterns.
Thank scene with people selling lanterns Luong Nhu Hoc Street, while at night although tourists flock here outnumber whenever it does not rain but still suffered unmarketable. Sellers constantly invited to the throat hoarse but buyers are few people only.
