Da Lat’s new tourist spot criticized for being too flashy

0

A new tourist area in the resort town of Da Lat has become controversial on social media over its design which is said to be “flashy”, “messy” and “spoils the natural beauty of Mimosa Pass”.

Scenic photos taken from above of the Thuong Uyen Bay Garden tourist area, located at Khe Sanh Road, Mimosa Pass, Ward 10, in Da Lat City are widely shared on social media.

A large number of opinions say that this station has a messy design, flamboyant colors and copied ideas, and does not have the unique and natural beauty of Da Lat tourism.

“Visitors come to Da Lat for its natural beauty, pleasant climate and ancient French architecture, not for modern skyscrapers and amusement parks without their own identity. It is difficult to understand the state of mind of Da Lat developers recently,” a visitor said. .

“This station is like a mixed hot pot, with drawings everywhere without connection or harmony. It’s really sad to see this image of Da Lat tourism,” said another tourist.

“I liked Da Lat in the past, a rustic, quiet and cool place. I remember Da Lat back then, there weren’t many cafes to take pictures like now. Looking at this work, I’m more disappointed,” tourist Han said Han.

Senior Ho Chi Minh City tour guide Ha Hoang said: “I haven’t been to this complex directly, but through the photos I think it’s too colorful and really lacks the features of the highland city I usually take international tourists to Da Lat – Nha Trang Tourists love Da Lat for the wild features of the pine forest and lakes, not the modern, man-made tourist areas.

In addition to design, public opinion is also interested in the licensing of this resort.

“Why is there such a concrete tourist area in the middle of the pine forest? Is it an illegal construction?” said visitor Ha Anh Thu.

This tourist area was developed by the Xuan Ai Hung Cooperative over 17,000 square meters. It officially opened to tourists on February 1.

Ms. Vu Thi Ai, chairperson of the board of Thuong Uyen Bay Garden Tourism Zone, told VietNamNet, “I wanted to build a prominent and brilliant work. My idea was to create a royal garden like those of kings in the heart of Da Lat. I have read many different opinions about the design of the resort, but I don’t think too much about it. I personally built this place with all my heart and desire to develop the local tourism.

Head of Da Lat Culture and Information Department, Mr. Le Anh Kiet, told VietNamNet that the resort is licensed according to the regulations of Lam Dong city and province.
