About Dalat

Located in the South Central Highlands of Vietnam, the attractive city of Dalat was once the summer retreat for French colonists. European-style villas were built here as an escape from the summer heat and humidity that affects Saigon and the coast. Spread across a series of pine-covered hills, Dalat is quite unlike anywhere else in Vietnam and more closely resembles the French Alps. With its colonial architecture, natural beauty and pleasant year-round temperatures, Dalat is fast becoming one of Vietnam's most popular tourist destinations.
