Dalat, or Da Lat (Đà Lạt), is a beautiful city in Lam Dong Province, Vietnam. It is about 309 kilometres from Ho Chi Minh City, 1411 kilometres from Hanoi Capital, and 654 kilometres from Danang City. Da Lat is one of the most famous cities in Vietnam, where you can find beautiful landscapes, intoxicating views, and a peaceful atmosphere that will bewitch you. Today, Vietnam Vacation Travel will bring you a Dalat City Tour 1 Day to explore the most romantic city in Vietnam.
This city has a lot of names based on what people think about it: The City of Thousand Flowers, The City of Fog, Little Paris, Dreamy City, The City of Eternal Spring, etc.
It is no exaggeration to say that Da Lat is favoured by nature. The ideal terrain and the surrounding pine forests create a mild and cold atmosphere all year round. The temperature is always under 30 degrees Celsius, including in the summer.
