Dalat Railway Station, Da Lat

2.3
#25 of 140 in Things to do in Da Lat
A colonial Art Deco structure with some nods to Vietnamese highland architecture, Dalat Railway Station once provided an important starting point for the rack railway. Climb into the old wooden carriages on display and take some nostalgic photos, then explore the well-preserved Japanese Class C12 steam locomotive and its counterpart, a 1930s German model of a Prairie engine. The station still services five trains, including a 7 km (4.3 mi) circular journey around the city and through some countryside. A local guide will tell you all about history of the region; refresh at the cafe in one of the trains. Before you visit Da Lat, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • Visit the station has no interest except that it resembles that of Deauville. On the other hand, take the train to get to the next village in an old wagon is pretty funny. Printing to a trip in time. The restoration of the cars is not very neat, there are Hi-Fi JVC not really of time but it's a nice experience to do a couple or family.

  • Not much going on here but for 5k you can’t really moan. Train schedule on board doesn’t match what the trains are.  more »
  • Were at the station only because went Pagoda Linh Phuoc district. And, train to the pagoda is the only one with this station. The building is a local landmark, but look there especially nothing except trains, where we went. Admission is 5000 vnd. Reach it by taxi.
