ĐẮK LẮK — A project to construct a theme park in Đắk Lắk Province’s Buôn Ma Thuột City has been submitted to the province’s People’s Committee.
The project named Nguyễn Tất Thành Park is proposed by the Construction Investment Project Management Board of Buôn Ma Thuột City.
The park is named after an alias of late President Hồ Chí Minh.
It will cover an area of 2.8ha located in Nguyễn Tất Thành Street in Tự An Commune.
Its main theme will be elephants, featuring many elephant sculptures, gardens, lakes, entertainment zones and restaurants.
The project is expected to have a total investment of VNĐ30 billion (US$1.2 million).
Upon its completion, the park would be the biggest ever in Đắk Lắk.
The project will help promote Đắk Lắk tourism and introduce the Tây Nguyên (central highland) province’s culture and lifestyle to people nationwide, said Lưu Quốc Bảo, director of Construction Investment Project Management Board of Buôn Ma Thuột City.
Đắk Lắk is hosting the 8th Buôn Ma Thuột Coffee Festival between March 10 and 14.
Its opening ceremony themed Buôn Ma Thuột – Destination of the World’s Coffee included a contest for farmers who are growing coffee by applying smart technology and adapting to climate change. The contestants come from eight provinces including Sơn La, Quảng Trị and Bình Phước.
Traditional games, artistic performances, and cooking and sports competitions are highlights of the festival.
“We expect to receive some 46,000-50,000 guests during this five-day 8th Buôn Ma Thuột Coffee Festival,” said Thái Hồng Hà, director of Đắk Lắk Culture, Sports and Tourism Department. — VNS
