The Central Highlands city of Đà Lạt is in full bloom as thousands of pink cherry blossoms, mostly Japanese sakura, spread their cheery pink colour throughout the city for Spring.

The Tuyền Lâm Lake Tourism site hosts the most trees with more than 35,700 planted throughout a 100ha park.

Around the city, there are more than 3,000 trees, most of which have been planted around Xuân Hương Lake, Dalat Maple Tourism Site and the downtown streets of Đống Đa, Ba Tháng Tư, Hồ Tùng Mậu, Lê Đại Hành, Trần Hưng Đạo Street, Phó Đức Chính and Tương Phố.

The flowers are likely to last until March while a flower festival based on cherry blossoms will be held between January 26 and January 28.

Mai Anh Đào (Prunus Cerasoides) is also in full bloom. It has the trunk of Prunus genus, but its flowers have a single layer of five petals, similar to the flowers of the Ceranus genus. — VNS
