Dalat 1/undefined by Tripoto


Nancy & Joseph Gill
Dalat is the Honeymoon hill station and we stopped there for just a night (Frankly, it was very cold to stay for more days) A former hill station for the French, the almost 5000 ft elevation was used by the locals and the tourists to escape the sweltering summer heat of Saigon. The crisp winter days and bright blue skies were a welcome backdrop for exploring the shores of the lake and the raucous, colorful market, where local fruits and vegetables of every description were practically given away. Having layered on all the clothes from our suitcases and still shivering, we paused for breakfast the next morning and swore we could hear the distant pounding surf of the warm coast. Not willing to stay for another night here, we set off towards Saigon.
