The high altitude and cooler climate of the city in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong make it a prime environment for dairy cows to thrive and produce top-quality milk, the article noted.

The mountainous city is also Vietnam’s top agricultural producer, and a popular vacation destination for both Vietnamese and foreign tourists.

The number of visitors to Da Lat as of mid-May was 160,000, down more than 70 percent year-on-year.

Of the total, the number of foreign visitors was 1,800, down 95.7 percent year-on-year, while domestic visitors totaled 158,200, down more than 68 percent compared to 2019.

Da Lat, however, has witnessed a growing number of visitors in recent weekends. It is expected that by September, the number of tourists to Da Lat will reach 70 percent of the same period in 2019./.
