Vietnam can boast one of the world's most romantic honeymoon spots as the wedding season gets into full swing.
Couples arriving at Love Valley soon catch a flavour of the place.
They are greeted by the image of two pairs of hands exchanging rings, a statue of lovers exchanging affection with each other and benches symbolising well-matched sweethearts.
The French named this green, flower-dotted romantic valley "Vallé d'Amour" ("Thung Lng Tình Yêu" or "Valley of Love") before it was recognised as a national landscape 15 years ago.
Even if romance isn't the purpose of your trip, holidaymakers on city breaks to Da Lat should pay Love Valley a visit.
The valley, about 5km (3.1 miles) north of the city centre, spans 242 hectares and is a perfect destination for those on specialist tours who crave picnicking and camping.
Poetic landscapes, melodious wind-swayed pine forests and the 13-hectare Da Thien Lake all add to the stunning mix.
The Valley of Love stages several intriguing, sometimes romance-themed festivals and events.
It held a kissing festival in 2008 and a dancing festival a year later and always suitably marks Valentine's Day.
Rose Park, which is a garden of rose flowers of different colours, was built on a romantic hill two years ago.
Couples can exchange love vows in a place where even the two iron-framed gates are heart-shaped. They can also add love padlocks and throw the keys into the lake in the park's centre near the statue of love.
