Dalat is a lovely little town set in the Southern Highlands of Vietnam. A short flight from Ho Chi Minh City, the town is a complete contrast to the hustle and bustle of the bigger cities and is a favourite destination for Vietnamese honeymooners.
You can see most of the attractions and get a feel for the town in around three days or take a little longer to relax and enjoy some of the cheap spa treatments available at the hotels. The shops and marketplace are a great place to hunt down a bargain or haggle for a piece of local art.
Highlights of Dalat include Xuang Huong Lake, Linh Son Pagoda, Bao Dai’s Summer Palace, Lat minority village, and the beautiful Flower Gardens.
