Ba Den Mountain in Tay Ninh Province, southern Vietnam has seen tourist numbers trending upward recently, even though the Vietnamese Lunar New Year holiday, or Tet, is already over.
Lots of visitors revealed they were impressed by a beautiful tulip garden coming into bloom at this tourist attraction.
This is the second year that thousands of tulips, the national flower of the Netherlands, have been featured at the Ba Den Mountain tourist attraction, a spiritual site.
Visitors can opt to take the Van Son cable car to the top of the mountain to admire the beauty of the iconic Dutch flower.

“This is my first time coming here and seeing tulips in person," Tuyet Mai, a 27-year-old native of Dak Lak Province in the Central Highlands, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper.
"I waited to travel to the Ba Den Mountain in the off-season but the current tourist numbers are still much higher than I thought.
“Despite crowds of people, I’ve taken many great photos as this place has lots of photoworthy spots.
“I also get impressed by the atmosphere, the landscape as well as spiritual works on the mountain. I will come back here again for sure."
