Welcome to Da Lat
Nicknamed the “Little Paris” of Asia or The City of Eternal Spring, Dalat is distinct from anywhere else you’ll visit in Vietnam. This was certainly how the former French colonists treated it – getting away from the heat of the rest of Vietnam and escaping to their chalets to enjoy a change in scenery and the fresh and cool atmosphere. The city is small enough to remain charming. Its naturally gifted beauty lies in blue lakes, waterfalls, lush pine forests, rolling hills and gardens. Swanning around the streets, it is lovely to encounter many old French colonial buildings, and deeper in the mountains there are delightful hill-tribe villages while farms and rice paddies can be found everywhere.
Visitors to Da Lat love to buy local products including silk, garden vegetables and flowers. It’s the country’s favorite honeymoon spot and still retains the final word in Vietnamese kitsch. The city is never short of fun outdoor opportunities such as hiking, paragliding, horseback riding, kids-friendly horse-and-cart rides and cooking classes. It perfectly suits for company weekend outings and family get-aways.
