An exhibition featuring the Central Highlands City of Da Lat will be held in Ho Chi Minh City next month.

Titled “Da Lat, et la carte créa la ville” (Da Lat and the establishment map), the exhibition is jointly presented by the French School of Asian Studies, the French Institute in Vietnam and the HCMC General Science Library.

According to the organizers, the event hopes to provide visitors chances to get to know more about the city, as well as its establishment and development process through the maps displayed at the event.

Last year the exhibition was organized for the first time in Da Lat as part of the festivities celebrating the 120th anniversary of the founding of the city as well as the "France-Vietnam Year 2013."

This time, it will be brought to HCMC at the city’s General Science Library at 69 Ly Tu Trong Street in District 1. The opening ceremony will take place at 5pm on June 17. The event is scheduled to run through July 4.

Admission is free.
