Da Lat (Lam Dong) always attracts a large number of tourists because of the dreamy beauty that makes people’s hearts through the flower seasons.
Da Lat has always been a place to attract tourists with its romantic and peaceful scenery. Da Lat also attracts tourists through the colors of flowers. Recently, Da Lat attracts a large number of tourists, especially young people when the cherry blossom season comes. But Da Lat always knows how to attract tourists when the cherry blossom season is over, the purple phoenix season comes earlier than expected in early February, but some roads already have flowers in bloom.
Since when did the purple phoenix flower season come about?
Every year in March and April, Da Lat makes many people “stand still” in front of the natural scenery that covers the purple color of phoenix flowers. However, this year the purple phoenix flowers bloomed earlier than usual, causing people to stir in recent days when the cherry blossoms were just about to pass. It can be seen that Da Lat always captivates tourists.
Purple phoenix originated from South America, was introduced and grown in Da Lat. Purple phoenix tree has a large, rough wood, 10-15 m high, 5-7m wide canopy, leaves shaped like Vietnam’s phoenix. When blooming, flowers are tubular, 4-5cm long, grow in bunches, wings are soft and gently fall in the wind. Purple phoenix flower season lasts about 3-4 months.
