NDO/VNA – More than 700 litres of free wine were served at the 7th Da Lat Flower Festival in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong on December 24.

Thousands of locals and tourists participated in the night wine festival in the resort city of Da Lat.

A photo exhibition highlighting the beauty of the Central Highlands and central coastal region kicked off the same day in Da Lat city.

In another event in the framework of the 7th Da Lat Flower Festival, a fashion show highlighting locally-made silk was held in Bao Loc city, Lam Dong province, which is dubbed Vietnam’s silk capital, on December 24.

The silk was used in 13 different collections by famous designers such as Minh Hanh, Ngoc Han, Ha Duy, Nguyen Thuy and Nhi Hoang.
