Da Lat At A Glance
Dalat is quite different from anywhere else you’ll visit in Vietnam. This was certainly how the former colonists treated it – escaping to their chalets to enjoy the cooler climate. Dalat is small enough to remain charming, and the surrounding countryside is blessed with lakes, waterfalls, evergreen forests and gardens.
Located in the South Central Highlands of Viet Nam (Lang Biang Highlands), Da Lat was originally the playground of the French , and today’s “valley of love”, surrounded by cool, fresh and silently charming atmosphere.
Dalat is located about 300km from Ho Chi Minh City, and 150km from Nha Trang
The City has its airport which is located only 30km from the southern of the City.
The airport serves domestic flights from and to Ho Chi Minh City, Danang, Hue, Hanoi, Vinh.
