Coming to this peaceful village, visitors also feel like they are lost in a world full of colors and magical scents of flowers and ornamental plants including: thistle, areca, fig, benjamine fig, ochana atropurpurea but through skillful, industrious, talent hands of artisan-artists. They became priceless bonsai with beatiful and uncanny forms. However, the most in quantity and type here are roses.

The most noticeable difference of Sa Đéc flower village compared to other flower villages is that the flowers are planted on high trellises, the bottom is flooded and flower growers have to wear boots or use small boats to care or pick flowers. This way can help the famers save costs and also avoid flood due to low terrain.
