The provincial People’s Committee said on March 22 that it approved in principle the organisation plan by the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The event, the second of its kind, will take place in all the 12 cities and districts in the province, featuring special programmes, according to the department.

The theme of “Tourism of experience, culture and cuisines” is picked up for Da Lat and Lac Duong, Lam Ha, Duc Trong and Don Duong districts, with 14 programmes, including an opening ceremony, an international music festival, exhibitions and art performances.

Community tourism will be promoted in Bao Loc city and Bao Lam, Di Linh and Dam Rong districts during the week through a folk dance festival, hot mineral bath services and a cycling tournament.

Other districts – Da Hoai, Da Ter and Cat Tien – will host a paragliding tournament, folk games, cycling tournaments and other sport activities.

Situated on a plateau around 1,500 metres above sea level, Da Lat enjoys year-round cool weather that is in contrast to Vietnam’s tropical climate.

As one of Vietnam’s biggest flower-growing regions, producing around 3 billion flower cuts every year, the city is a must-visit destination for flower lovers around the world.

Last year, the city welcomed about 7 million visitors, including about 140,000 foreign visitors.
