Dalat is Vietnam’s “City of Eternal Spring”, a moniker well-earned for the perpetually mild temperatures and stunning mountain scenery. The former French colonial town is a popular destination for Vietnamese and international tourists alike, and it’s not hard to see why. From the lakes and parks that dot the city to the towering peaks that surround it, Dalat is one of the most picturesque places in Southeast Asia. The town is also home to a thriving arts and culture scene, with a number of galleries and performance venues. While Dalat is a great place to spend a few days, the surrounding countryside is even more spectacular, and is well worth exploring.
