Dong Thap (VNA)
- Visitors to the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap should take a trip to the farms in the Lai Vung area where farmers earn a living growing pink tangerine.

Throngs of holiday-makers from Ho Chi Minh City are flocking to the gardens in Lai Vung to witness the ripening season and take photos while spending a day picking fruit.

Travellers are advised to drop by the orchards by the 20th of the 12th lunar month, which falls on February 5 this year, as local farmers will start picking fruit for sale during the peak Tet (Lunar New Year) season.

From HCM City, travellers can take a bus to Dong Thap province at tour operators’ offices on Pham Ngu Lao, De Tham and Bui Vien streets in district 1 or at a bus station on Le Hong Phong street in district 10.-VNA
