About Travel to Dalat

Dalat is one of several highland holiday destinations in Vietnam. Dalat is much closer to Ho Chi Minh City than the highland areas, such as Sapa, in the North of Vietnam and lots of Vietnam tourists come to Dalat, particularly before or after weddings to take pictures of the couple in their wedding attire.

Cooler Temperatures in Dalat

Dalat is located at altitude, 1,500 metres above sea level, surrounded by lakes, forests and hills creating an excellent background for photographs. The higher altitude also means that the weather is much cooler than lowland areas of Vietnam allowing the production of temperate climate vegetables and flowers, and the whole area is very green.

French Influence on Dalat

Dalat was founded in 1907 as a holiday destination for French residents of Vietnam. Since that time Dalat has grown into a large town with other 400,000 permanent residents. The French influence is still apparent in the layout of the town, which features wide streets, and its architecture. Paticularly notable is Dalat’s pretty train station which is disconnected from the main railway network. Dalat Railway Station looks very similar to the historic Trouville-Deauville Railway Station in Normandy. Also notable are the three Art Deco style villas built for the last Emperor of Vietnam who frequently came on holiday to Dalat.

Cable Car to Thien Vien Truc Lam Monastery

For the best views of Dalat and the surrounding area we recommend taking the cable car service up to Thien Vien Truc Lam Monastery and Linh Phuoc Pagoda. The views on route and from these two hill top temples are stunning.
