Perched on a plateau 5000 feet (1500 meters) above sea level the old hill station of Dalat was and remains the geographic antidote to the heat and humidity of Saigon, 300 kilometers south. Its fresh air, pine-clad hills and mild temperatures have earned Dalat the label of "City of Eternal Spring." Dalat’s treasure of colonial French villas and chateaus is unrivaled in Vietnam. Dalat is still a luxury retreat, where you can play golf on one of the finest courses in Indochina, visit beautiful temples and waterfalls, and enjoy the town’s honeymoon atmosphere. Dalat is truly the jewel of the central highlands, dotted with lakes, evergreen forests and gardens. Its cool climate and park-like environment makes this one of the most delightful places of Vietnam.
