A map exhibition featuring the establishment history of Da Lat, a famous resort town in the Central Highlands, is now on display in Ho Chi Minh City through July 4.
The exhibition, titled “Da Lat – And the map created the city”, takes place at 69 Ly Tu Trong Street in Ho Chi Minh City's District 1.
Titled “Da Lat – And the map created the city”, the exhibition displays maps, photos, and documents collected from archive centers in Vietnam, France, Switzerland, and Japan.
While introducing the history of Da Lat, the event aims to call for preserving the town’s architectural heritage during its urban development in the future.
This exhibition was introduced for the first time in Da Lat last year as part of the “French Year in Vietnam” program and in celebrations for the 120th anniversary of the town.
This time, the event takes place at the HCMC Library of General Sciences located at 69 Ly Tu Trong Street in District 1. Admission is free.
The exhibition is jointly organized by the French School of the Far East, the French Institute in Vietnam, and the HCMC Library of General Sciences with the support from the French Consulate General in HCMC and Vietnam’s National Archive Center.
