Dong Nai Rubber Forest in Leaf Leaf-changing Season

On the first days of the new year, many people flock to rubber gardens in Long Khanh, Thong Nhat, Cam My, and Dong Nai to take photos of the changing leaves season.

At the beginning of the dry season, the vast rubber forests in Dong Nai begin to lose their leaves, creating a beautiful scene. Dong Nai is one of the three provinces with the largest rubber area in the country, including many gardens associated with the history of the formation of the domestic rubber industry.

Many people took advantage of the opportunity to take photos and capture moments during the season when the trees changed their leaves to bright yellow. The addresses most visited by tourists are Hang Gon, Xuan Que, Dau Giay farm areas… about 50 km from Ho Chi Minh City.

“The rubber area only takes one hour by car along the Ho Chi Minh City – Long Thanh – Dau Giay highway, so it is very convenient for tourists,” said Ms. Hang, from Ho Chi Minh City.

A group of female students took pictures having fun on the way home from school through the rubber garden in Thong Nhat district. “We want to save the beautiful memories of our school years with the rubber leaf shedding season,” said a female student.
