Over 2,000 bonsai trees with outstanding shapes from 24 cities and provinces across Vietnam have been transported to the central province of Quang Ngai for display.

The bonsai trees are being exhibited at the open Quang Ngai ornamental creature exhibition, the largest-ever of its kind in the province, which will last until next Wednesday, said Tran Bao Phat, chairman of the provincial Ornamental Creature Association.

Artisans rarely mentioned the prices of their bonsai at the exhibition.

They mainly talked about the beauty and age of the bonsai and their efforts in taking care of the trees.

An ancient bonsai tamarind tree of artisan Cong Thuan from Da Nang City in central Vietnam was among those attracting many visitors.

Having taken care of it for four years, Thuan does not know the age of the tamarind tree.

He just knows that its previous owner had kept the plant for 26 years.

Thuan is willing to share with visitors the art of bonsai, saying that he has spent great effort, heart, and mind on the tamarind tree.

“I have yet to be content with the tree. It will take me at least three more years to perfect it and feel satisfied,” Thuan said.

Thuan, a well-known bonsai aficionado in Vietnam, hailed the scale of the exhibition and the beauty of the bonsai.

Bonsai with various sizes and types at the exhibition are a feast for the eyes.
