Hundreds are flocking to capture shots with the yellow blooms.

News is spreading in Saigon about a new photography set filled with golden sunflowers in the southern province of Dong Nai.

Taking about one hour by motorbike, visitors can witness a plantation of proud sunflowers near Saigon instead of taking the long journey to the Central Highlands town of Da Lat.

The manager of the tourist resort said that on weekends, the flower garden welcomes 300-500 visitors. Due to the hot weather in the southern region, they have to water the garden frequently to keep the flowers fresh.
