Traveling through winter-spring flower seasons

VietNamNet Bridge – Besides tours of popular tourist destinations, travelers can plan their own trips depending on flower seasons. A flower sightseeing tour is unlike a normal package tour. A new flowering season is different from previous ones since each flower has its own beauty and charm. It usually begins in winter and blooms in spring. Each region in the country has its own special flower, so adventurers are advised to come to the right place to see it.
