Da Lat flower villages await visitors

Thai Phien, Ha Dong and Van Thanh, three famous flower villages in Da Lat city, are must-see destinations for visitors during the Da Lat flower festival from December 26 to January 1.

The flower villages, located 2-7km away from the city's centre area, cultivate various kinds of flowers from indigenous to imported ones such as roses and lily.

The Ha Dong Flower Village in Ward 8, established 75 years ago by 35 households originally from Ha Noi, was the first village in Da Lat that specialised in flowers.

The Van Thanh flower Village, the city's largest, was established by natives of northern Ha Nam Province. Van Thanh produces about 80 per cent of roses bought by local buyers. — VNS
