Low-cost carrier Vietjet Air has launched direct flights between Đà Lạt and China’s Wuhan city, with the first flight carrying more than 200 passengers landing at Liên Khương Airport last Sunday, the director of the Lâm Đồng Province Department of Culture, Sport and Tourism said.

The number of Chinese visitors to the Central Highlands province is expected to increase by 10-12 per cent to 250,000 this year.
Located 1,500 metres above sea level, Đà Lạt was ranked fourth this year in a top 10 list of rising destinations in Asia by popular travel booking site TripAdvisor.
In January the New York Times newspaper also recommended Đà Lạt as one of the 52 places to visit in 2016, describing it as “an agricultural El Dorado” with unique scenes of pine forests, locally grown avocados and artichoke tea. — VNS
