The white Bauhinia flowers are attracting a lot of people to Da Lat in January.

The town’s Quang Trung Street is lined by the trees that have shed all their leaves, leaving just the flowers on its branches. Cameras and smartphones are out in force at this time.

The flower has five petals with small stamens and usually grows near the tips of the branches. Their nectar attracts many insects.
