Owner description: In its heyday, Dalat Station boasted three arrivals and departures daily. The French built the railway station itself, while the zigzagging tracks were planned and implemented by the Swedish, experts in tricky terrain.

This is a lovely old station. I didn't get time to take a trip on one of the old trains but would have liked to have done so.
The wating room really sticks in my mind as being so different from todays train stations.

We enjoyed both the architecture of the station and the fun trip in the old wooden rain cars on the narrow gauge railway. Passing through typical neighbourhoods and large commercial gardens and greenhouses, you reach another town in 30 minutes and visit some interesting pagodas, then return to Dalat. Just be aware that the train doesn't always follow the schedule. We arrived to take a late morning trip, only to discover that it wasn't running that day, and came back for an afternoon trip instead. Maybe it is the mountain air, but Dalat just had a different feel than any other place we visited in Vietnam.

We travelled on a train leaving from the old station. This station was built during the French occupation but is a great landmark. The train ride lets you see how the countryside really is. Really enjoyed this day out.

Nice Art Deco Building and some old trains. Would not have been on our "stop and see list" unless we had an extra day. DaLat has many more exciting things to see, unless you are a old train or art deco building fan. It was actually fun seeing the two weddings being photographed here, so not a waste of our time totally.
