Da Lat

Da Lat has many names such as 'City of Eternal Spring', 'the Jewel of the Central Highlands', or 'Le Petit Paris', Da Lat provides a pleasant and cool place to spend a couple of days in and enjoy a different part of the country.

Da Lat, and the central highlands are renowned throughout the country for vegetables, waterfalls, pine forests, and flowers. The province is also recognized as the honeymoon destination for Vietnamese couples.

The town was established at the end of the 19th century as a hill station for Saigon’s European populace. Dr. Alexandre Yersin suggested the establishment of the first health resort in the area in 1893. The therapeutic climate and lush countryside allowed visitors to get away from the heat of the cities and plains and also to enjoy big-game hunting.

The game may now be gone but there are several things to do in Da Lat such as a bevy of French colonial buildings (villas and timber-framed farmhouses), restored colonial-era hotels, an art deco rail station, and a cathedral. There are also several hill tribes in the surrounding areas. Whilst these hill tribes are not as colorful as their northern mountain counterparts, they are diverse and quite unique.

The ideal time to visit Da Lat is in the months of November to April. There are two daily flights that travel to Da Lat from Ho Chi Minh City.

The Best of the Highlands: Dalat to Kontum

Three hours away from Da Lat is Lak Lake, a huge lake formed by converging streams and rivers. The highlands are the perfect location for travelers looking to spend time with the various hill tribes such as the Edeh, Jarai, and the M’Nong people. Tourists can visit nearby villages on foot, canoe, or bike. There are also elephant riding sessions upon request and a variety of fascinating visits to the former hunting lodge of the last Emperor Bao Dai.

An hour further north is Buon Ma Thuot, one of the biggest cities in the region and the coffee exportation center for the surrounding regions. Depending on how long you stay in Lak Lake, you may head to Buon Ma Thuot for a night. Others prefer to visit Kontum (5 hours) or Pleiku (4 hours) instead of Buon Ma Thuot. Of the two, Kontum is the most interesting and it is best to at least spend the night in town. There are plenty of interesting places in town but the highlights are the countryside and the surrounding Banhar minority villages. From Kontum, you can either head south to the coastal area of Quy Nhon or travel north to Da Nang.
