Travel Da Lat is located in the central highland of Vietnam at Lam Dong province, and about 200km far from the northeast of Ho Chi Minh City. It was founded in 1897 when Doctor Alexandre Yersin recommended that this area could be developed as a resort town.

 

Then French started to invest in the town as the playground with a lot of  hotels and villas in the clear mountain air to escape from the heat and humidity of the coast and Saigon at that time. Da Lat became different from anywhere else in Vietnam, and it looks like a cross between Vietnam and France.

There are many buildings built base on the French architecture such as Da Lat train station, the Crazy House, Hang Nga guest house, the three palaces and summer home of the last emperor of Vietnam Bao Dai,...

The city spreads across a series of pine-covered hills, with a small lake in the center and surrounded by a lake and higher peaks, making for some lovely scenery.

 

All the lakes in Da Lat become famous because of its romantic name and charming sightseeing as Ho Xuan Huong, Than Tho, Da Thien, and Tuyen Lam. In addition, the city  is surrounded with LangBian highland, one of the attractive spot at Da Lat with the height 1900m, also the living area of some ethnic minority villages.


Thanks to its pleasant weather, Da Lat is also called “Eternal Spring” city, warm during the day and pretty cool at night. Sometimes, it  could be down to 10 degree.

 

That weather is quite good condition to grow plenty kinds of plant, so Da Lat is the supplier of vegetable and fruit all over Vietnam. Moreover,  the city also has another name of  “City of flowers”  with 2 famous typical flowers: hydrangea and golden everlasting. The flowers growing industry is highly developed so the city organizes the Flowers festival every year to attract more tourists.

Nowaday 
Da Lat is one of the most attractive destinations in Vietnam. About 800,000 domestic tourists and 80,000 foreign tourists visit every year, and it becomes the country’s favorite honeymoon spot thanks to its romantic scenery.
