About
The French colonial houses in this neighborhood are in disrepair, but still exude a sense of Dalat’s former ambience.

These are just a collection of private villas. Not really worth seeing and definitely not worth walking around. Was very disappointed with it.

A collection of large old houses on a large plot of land which were occupied by French government officials when France "ruled" Vietnam. Supposedly of French design but the resemblance is hard to identify except for the wooden shutters by the windows. The buildings have...More
