The 120th Birthday of Dalat city
Jan 01st 2013.
Dalat city is begining a new year with a lot of busy preparations for its 120th birthday. Through 120 years of development, Dalat experienced numerous ups and downs, happy and sad events… in order to achieve current reputations as the city of thousand pine trees, flowers and thousand things calling people.
The fist taste of Dalat city is the sound of pine leaves in wind ringing as if they are singing everywhere on the hilltop, valley, around old villas and two sides of the road. Strolling on streets of countless flower kinds such as pink cherry blossom at the end of the year, bright yellow mimosa signals spring coming, purple flamboyant at the peaceful conner,… or hundred kinds of wild flower originated from Dalat.
Someone reaches to Dalat for listening local people talk to each other everyday issues: how to cultivate flower and vegetable, apply new technology in farming, tourists, children’s studying, construction… and they especially spend a lot of time for The Flower Festival 2013 coming which is not only marking 120 years of city development but also beginning the national tourism year with theme “ Central Highland green roads” in 5 provinces of Central Highlands.

All in a magnificent panorama.
