Introduction to Sa Dec Flower Village
In the earlier days, Sa Dec was a rich and strategic region because it is central to Tam Phong Long land and is located between the Tien and Hau rivers. The name "Sa Dec" is the Vietnamese pronunciation of the word "Phsar-Dek" which is the name of the God of water worshiped by the Khmer people and it also means Sat Market. The history of formation and development of this land is an interference and joint effort of the community of 3 ethnic groups of Kinh - Hoa - Khmer.
Today, Sa Dec City is a municipality directly under Dong Thap province, covering an area of 59 km and a population of 152,000 people. It is about 148 km from Ho Chi Minh City and 60km from Can Tho City. Sa Dec has many famous tourist destinations such as Huynh Thuy Le ancient house, Kien An Cung Pagoda, Ba Thien Hau Temple, Vinh Phuoc Temple,... especially Sa Dec flower village - considered the flower capital of the Mekong River Delta.
Sa Dec flower village with a tradition of more than 100 years is about 3km from the center of Sa Dec city. It has an area of 500 households and more than 1500 types of rich and diverse flora from ornamental leaves and ornamental flowers to bonsai art with ornamental plants hundreds of years old.
