Dalat, the highlands of Vietnam

After Ho Chi Minh trip, I continued and heading my journey to the south central highlands of Vietnam. The next stop was Dalat city, which is the highlands in Vietnam.

The distance was around 308 km and it took about 6 hours to arrive at Dalat. Since it’s at Highland, prepare yourself with the warm jacket.

The average temperature was around 21 Celcius when I was there during the month of November.

Dalat is a great place to enjoy the nice view, nice coffee and feel the cold weather.


What you can see and do in Dalat:

Sightseeing around Dalat town:

Rent a bike and ride around the town. Have a look at the unique buildings there such as:

Sunflower Architecture Lam Vien Square –watching a movie on Wednesday (half price)

Doha Cafe

it’s just next to sunflower shopping mall, such a unique design of the shop.

Dalat has been influenced by European culture since a long time ago. According to my research, Dalat got discovered because since last time many Europeans wanted to escape the heat from Saigon (aka HCMC).

Xuan Huong Lake– It is a peaceful and relaxing place.The restaurant next to the lake is high-end scale and mainly for foreigners tourists, the price was slightly expensive.

Crazy House – It is worth to go once

Initially, the house was named “Hang Nga guesthouse”, but was then changed to “Crazy House”.

It was originally built as a personal project by Vietnamese architect Dang Viet Nga, who received a PhD in architecture from the University of Moscow.

 

Dalat Waterfalls – check out 3 main waterfalls in Dalat:

  • Pongour Waterfall – this is the largest waterfall in south Vietnam

It was a rainy season when I was there, hence the waterfall was a bit heavy with water.

  • Elephant Waterfall

Dantala Waterfall

St. Nicholas Cathedral – also known as roaster church, spot the chicken on top

Canoeing

Coffee farm – taking a break and enjoy the nice coffee at coffee farm

Or try some exotic food?

There are many more things you could do in Dalat including walking at the  night market, water rafting and taking cycling tour to Mui Ne.

Cycling from one city to another one is something that I wish to do the near future.

Hope you enjoy reading and happy travelling to you!

  2. Thanks for your posting. I would also like to remark that the first thing you will need to complete is to see if you really need repairing credit. To do that you will need to get your hands on a duplicate of your credit history. That should not be difficult, ever since the government necessitates that you are allowed to be issued one free copy of the credit report per year. You just have to check with the right persons. You can either check out the website for that Federal Trade Commission or maybe contact one of the major credit agencies instantly.

  3. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  4. Just about all of the things you say is supprisingly appropriate and that makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. Your article truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject matter goes. Nonetheless there is one particular issue I am not really too comfortable with so while I try to reconcile that with the actual core theme of your point, let me observe what the rest of the readers have to point out.Well done.
