NDO – During April, visitors to the Tan Trao National Special Relic Site in Son Duong District, Tuyen Quang Province, had the chance to enjoy blooming yellow lim vang (Peltophorum tonkinensis) flowers.

The flowering season of lim vang begins in late March and lasts for over a month until the yellow flowers have flooded the road to Na Nua Shack.

In addition to the historical sites such as the Hong Thai communal house and the Tan Trao banyan tree, a lim vang tree beside the old bridge has become an attractive destination for visitors to pose for photos. During the National Reunification and May Day holidays, visitors to Tan Trao have the chance to enjoy the yellow colour of lim vang flowers in harmony with the voice of the stream and the sound of Then songs and Tinh flute performed by Tay ethnic minority girls.
