Lam Dong (VNA)
– The resort city of Da Lat, a popular destination in the Central Highland province of Lam Dong, greeted 58,000 tourists during the Liberation of the South and National Reunification Day (April 30) and International Labour Day (May 1).

Though the figure showed a year-on-year decline of 35 percent, it was a good sign after the prolonged COVID-19 outbreak, according to local authorities.

The total included 1,300 international visitors.

Since the Government eased social distancing, local tourist sites have been re-opened to holidaymakers.

Most vacationers were aware of preventive measures and wore face masks while keeping a minimum physical distance.

Vice Chairwoman of the Da Lat People’s Committee Tran Thi Vu Loan said the city has requested travel agencies to fully implement preventive measures.

Famous for its mild climate all year round, Da Lat has two distinct seasons, the rainy and the sunny season. The rainy season usually begins in May and finishes in October.

It is also well-known for its beautiful French colonial architecture, such as King Bao Dai’s Palace, Ngo Dinh Diem and Nguyen Cao Ky’s villas, and the Hang Nga villas./.
