Da Lat

Situated at a 1,000 meter elevation on the Langbian Plateau, Da Lat, dubbed as the “little Paris”, has all best conditions for a real retreat: the spring-like cool weather with mist covering year-round, elegant French-colonial villas, romantic lakes and blooming flowers.

Da Lat
Da Lat, belonging to the Central Highlands of Vietnam, was established as a hill resort in the early 20th century by homesick French colonials who were attracted to its cool, spring-like weather, pine-covered hills, evergreen forests, waterfalls and lakes. Many reminders of the city’s colonial period can be found in myriad European style villas and building all around. A fine example is the striking cream-colored art deco villa which is often known as Bao Dai palace that was once the summer palace of Bao Dai, Vietnam’s last emperor. In the heart of the city is Vietnam’s first golf course, originally constructed for Emperor Bao Dai. With the recent restoration, it’s now perhaps the most beautiful course in Vietnam. And do not forget to check in other prominent French-built architectures including Da Lat cathedral (or Chicken Church), Pedagogical College of Da Lat and Da Lat railway station.

Apart from its colonial heritages, the city is one of Vietnam’s premier agricultural areas, growing everything from vegetables, fruits to many kinds of flowers thanks to its location on the Lang Biang plateau in the central highlands region with mild temperature and fertile land.

For the Vietnamese, Da Lat means romance, and with attractions like the Valley of Love, Xuan Huong Lake, it is the destination of choice for honeymooners. The city also makes it name for some adventurous activities like hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking and canyoning in the rugged region around Mount Lang Biang.
