This time of year, gardeners in Long Khanh, a city under Dong Nai Province in southern Vietnam, are busy harvesting ripe rambutans, durians, mangosteens, and jackfruits from orchards, pushing them to integrate garden ecology with tourism and gastronomy in order to attract tourists.

From Phan Thiet City in the south-central province of Binh Thuan, it takes around two hours to reach Long Khanh City, where visitors may taste luscious fruits.

On National Highway 1, particularly in the vicinity of the Tan Phong junction, it is simple for travelers to observe the thriving fruit commerce.

Buses pass by this area frequently, allowing passengers to purchase fruits.

Along the rural roads in Binh Loc, Bao Quang, Xuan Lap, and Bau Sen Communes are lush fruit gardens.

Long Khanh has a long history of fruit cultivation, according to Tran Hai Son, deputy director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development in Dong Nai Province.

There are few areas with the same fruit quality as this region due to the red basalt soil, black soil, and exceptional climate conditions.

Long Khanh is also a land with diversified and abundant fruit trees that produce tasty fruit year-round, as well as numerous decades-old gardens.

Nowadays, many gardeners have expanded their tourism-related service offers in order to increase their income.

In addition to the exquisite fruit, visitors can also enjoy regional delicacies prepared and served by the gardeners.
