Dalat is unique among destination resorts in Vietnam. It sits high in the hills of Southern Vietnam and whilst there are things to do in the city, including bars and restaurants etc, the main attraction is the surrounding areas. The scenery here is magnificent and the climate cooler than most places. The city has become one of the top places to visit for the people of Ho Chi Minh City looking for a weekend getaway. Approximately 75km from Nha Trang on the coast it is ideally placed. Surrounded by beautiful pine forests it is not hard to understand why people find it high among things to see in Vietnam. Notable attractions include Lang Biang Mountain and the spectacular Linh Phuoc Pagoda.
