Must read

As spring comes a-knocking, Dalat City in the Lam Vien plateau comes alive with the bright colors of numerous flowers, especially the pink hues of the Prunus cerasoides blossoms.

Dalat, the most famous city in the Central Highlands region of Vietnam, was discovered by Dr. Alexandre Yersin in the late 19th century. It is located on the Lam Vien plateau, around 1,500 meters above sea level.

Thanks to its favorable climate, poetic beauty, and special flora on the surrounding mountain ranges, Dalat was dubbed as a second Paris.

With a variety of flowers in full bloom throughout the year, Dalat is also considered a city of flowers and has become a popular place for numerous flower festivals in the country.

Ahead of the Tet holiday, or Lunar New Year, is when the most famous flowers in Dalat – Prunus cerasoides – blossom, signaling the arrival of spring and creating dreamlike scenes across the city.

This beautiful flower can easily be found along the Prenn mountain pass, Xuan Huong Lake, streets of Tran Hung Dao, Hung Vuong, Trai Mat, Cau Dat, and many other places in the urban areas and forests outside the city.

Thousands of Prunus cerasoides trees in full bloom with pinkish-white blossoms attract locals and visitors alike.
