Information About Dalat In Vietnam

By Jose Maurette Garces

Dalat, which today counts about 200.000 inhabitants, was founded only in 1897 by the French colonial masters. Since beginning of the Twentieth Century, this charming town has been the main spot for Vietnam holidays for both Vietnamese people and foreigners.

Getting there

Vietnam Airlines has daily short flights between Dalat with Ho Chi Minh City, and there is also one flight per day between Dalat and Hanoi. The airport is around 30 km south of the city. It is also possible to arrive to Dalat by bus or car. From Dalat, it takes around 4 hours to Nha Trang (205km) and about 5 to 6 hours to Ho Chi Minh City (308km). Public buses, as well as the popular tourist buses, run both of these routes with stops.

What to do

Prenn Fall located about 9 miles out of Dalat towards Phan Rang, it is one of the largest waterfalls in Dalat. It falls freely from an overhanging outcrop and thunders into a pool below. You can swim around the pool and go behind the curtain of falling water. If you are in the area, do go check out the falls before tourism gets the best of them.

XUAN HUONG LAKE Created by a dam in 1919, banana-shaped Xuan Huong Lake was named after a 17th-century Vietnamese poet known for her daring attacks on the hypocrisy of social conventions and the foibles of scholars, monks, mandarins and kings. The lake can be circumnavigated along a 7km sealed path that leads past several of Dalat’s main sights, including the flower gardens, golf club and the majestic hilltop Hotel Sofitel Dalat Palace
