Da Lat is a refreshing hill station located in the southwestern highlands of Vietnam and is about 6 hours away from Ho Chi Minh City. A far cry from the tropical heat of the south, Da Lat's crisp and cool weather attracts honeymooners, backpackers as well as luxury travellers.
Surrounded by pine trees, lofty hills, blossoming flowers, world-class golf and relics of French architecture, Da Lat is often called Mini Paris for its relaxing environs. The climate of Da Lat also makes it a great place for farming local produce such as fruits, vegetables and of course, the Robusta Coffee.
Da Lat Town is a bustling metropolis of a city whereas, its surrounding are embellished with hills, gardens, lakes, coffee plantations and waterfalls. No wonder then that Da Lat is also famous for hiking, canyoning and trekking among backpackers. It is also a local favourite when it comes to choosing a honeymoon destination.
From history to sightseeing, and from quiet cafe nooks to bustling markets filled with locally grown fruits and vegetables; Da Lat has everything to keep a tourist happy and satiated!
