A day in Trai Mat
Update: Aug 01, 2014
It might be an interesting experience for tourists to be a gardener at Trai Mat, an outskirt area which is 8km away from Da Lat City.

From the city downtown, people can follow Tran Hung Dao and Hung Vuong streets to get to the site after a 20-minute drive on motorbike. Tourists can also take a bus or train to get there.

Along the way, people can admire beautiful pine trees and French-style villas looming under the shades or they can see local farmers planting vegetables on the hills or students with rosy cheeks wearing woolen coats walking on the street.

After strolling on a small path leading to Linh Phuoc Pagoda, tourists will arrive in a valley where they are lost in a vast area of vegetables like carrot, cabbage, strawberry, onion and amaranth.

They can wander along the farm and talk with local people or pick ripped strawberries and carrot by themselves.

People can buy strawberry as present for family and friends at the price from VND150,000 per kilo at the garden.

Then, tourists are advised to visit a nearby market and Linh Phuoc Pagoda, a seven-level tower which was built from glass pieces and a giant Buddha of Mercy statue made from aster flowers.
