HCMC – Dong Thap Province’s Sa Dec, known as the flower kingdom of the Mekong Delta region, will be developed into a culture and tourism village with a total investment of VND600 billion, which has been approved by the Dong Thap government.
It will be carried out in two phases from 2020 to 2030, with capital from the State and local budgets, enterprises and residents.
The village will have a monitoring house, a display area, a lab for research on flowers, areas for cuisine and traditional festivals and resorts. It is expected to help locals shift toward producing bonsai trees safely and supplying them to the local market.
