The Da Lat Flower Gardens house an extensive collection of native and exotic flowers, and for this reason, Da Lat is dubbed “the city of flowers” in Vietnam. Founded in 1966, the gardens feature more than 300 different kinds of flowers, many of which blossom all year round.
Visitors can explore a variety of different gardens, including a giant cactus garden, fields of orchids, and rose, mimosa, and hydrangea displays. There are also finely-trimmed topiary displays found throughout the park. The park entrance greets visitors with an arc-shaped flower arrangement featuring hundreds of impressive flowerpots.
A lake is located in the middle of Da Lat Flower Gardens, where children can paddle around in swan boats. We highly recommend walking up the flower-adorned stairs for a unique vantage point and new perspective of the gardens. The best times to visit Da Lat Flower Gardens are during winter and spring. Every 2 years, the gardens transform into one of the venues for the Spring Flower Fair and the Winter Flower Festival. Located on the northern side of Xuan Huong Lake, the gardens are 2 km from Da Lat’s city centre. The easiest way to get there is to take a taxi from anywhere in the city, and you’ll soon find yourself in a peaceful environment away from the city’s hustle and bustle.
