I was lucky enough to have Thang show me around. He was extremely kind and informative. I wasn't feeling well during the trip and he even let me stop to take a nap. He was also a great driver and I felt very safe.
Dalat City is the most famous hill stations in Vietnam. Dalat is small enough to remain charming, and the surrounding countryside is blessed with lakes, waterfalls, evergreen forests and gardens. It’s the favourite honeymoon spot of the country, especially for the honeymooners on the beautiful Langbiang Plateau.
Dalat is very famous as the city of thousand flowers and there are lots of farms for growing temperate vegetable that only can be found in Dalat. The city's temperate weather stands in contrast to Vietnam's otherwise tropical climate. Mist covering the valleys almost year-round leads to its name "City of eternal spring". Local products include silk, garden vegetables and flowers (especially beautiful hydrangeas), which are sold all over southern Vietnam.
The city’s population includes about 5000 members of hill tribes, which make up 33 distinct communities in Lam Dong province. Traditional dress can occasionally be spotted in the market places. Hill-tribe women of this area carry their infants on their backs in a long piece of cloth worn over one shoulder and tied in the front. To visit their village, you can stay in a Homestay and discover the life of hill tribes, or even doing the trekking in the beautiful nature of Dalat.
