According to Secretary-General of TPO, Kim Soo-il, Da Lat city has many tourism potentials, such as ecotourism sites, public safety and security.

Chairman of the People’s Committee of the city Ton Thien Sanh said that after gaining the requirements for membership, Da Lat can connect and cooperate with TPO member cities to develop tourism. The city will have a chance to advertise its tourism, agriculture and typical products on the channel as well as develop good quality tourism in accordance with the TPO’s orientation.
According to the People’s Committee of Da Lat City, the town received more than 700,000 international visitors who spent 2-4 days in 2018.
