Vietnam: Foreign farmers pour investments in Da Lat

Bringing sea water to mountains to grow vegetables is what Low Kok Chiang, 70, a Singaporean farmer, is doing at an organic vegetable farm at the foot of Voi Mountain, 15 kilometers from Da Lat City.

The man and his wife from HCMC decided to stay in Da Lat and develop a vegetable farm when they fell in love with the land during a trip.

On the 2-hectare farm, they grow many vegetables, including wheatgrass, used to treat diabetes. To grow snowdrops, Low has to water plants with sea water brought from Phan Rang.
