Visitors flock to flower tours

Da Lat, known as the city of flowers, located in the Central Highland province of Lam Dong, has recently attracted visitors with farming tours of flower villages.

Participating in the tours, visitors are introduced to all stages of flower and vegetables cultivation, from preparing the land, growing seedlings, tending to plants and harvesting. Tourists can stay at farms during their visit.

After participating in the tours, many tourists, especially the younger ones, said they would visit again, according to local travel agencies.

Da Lat has several flower villages, including Thai Phien, Van Thanh and Ha Dong. The 50 year-old Thai Phien flower village in Ward 12 has 1,100 farm households with a total area of 436ha, including 78ha of flowers. — VNS
