NDO/VNA – The Central Highlands province of Lam Dong unveiled that it will run its Da Lat flower festival in Da Lat and Bao Loc cities and a number of districts from December 20 to 24.

The biennial event will feature 13 major programmes, including a grand opening ceremony at Lam Vien Square, a flower space around Xuan Huong lake, both in Da Lat, a Vietnam - Republic of Korea cultural exchange, the Bao Loc tea and silk cultural week, and a Bao Loc silk fashion show.

A series of workshops are scheduled to take place, including those on promoting Lam Dong’s investment-trade-tourism, production connectivity and investment attraction in Da Lat, and tea and silk development in Bao Loc.

Notably, the exhibition space around Xuan Huong lake will change its flower themes on a daily basis throughout the festival. Rose will be the highlight on the first day, followed by lily, eustoma russellianum - tagetes, and orchid. The exhibition will be rounded off with a display of various signature flowers of Da Lat.

Lam Dong is the largest flower producer in Vietnam, supplying three billion branches per year, or 50% of the country’s output, accounting for 40% of the country’s flower growing area.

The province’s net houses and glasshouses, which improve flower growing, cover a total of 2,000ha.
