Dalat Railway Station, Da Lat
(2.3/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Da Lat holiday planner makes visiting Dalat Railway Station and other Da Lat attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Fabulous place needs more promotion and maybe a nice cafe. Some great old trains there. Well preserved. 
  • Went to the pagoda. Cashier starts half an hour before the otpoavlenija. We waited more than an hour doing nothing at the station. Drove late at 7 min., waited for a group of tourists for whom being overrun and padded wagon. Reported back at 15.30 departure. When we approached at 15.20, saw that it had already blocked the road. Barely had time to vbezhat' in the car and the train moved on. The trip is not enjoyed, time for a little pagoda, przhaoeli that have not gone away.

  • The station itself really gives the European style, pleasant. Such stations probably erected in Europe in the old resort towns. It's small, but ... home or something. But the station is the main railway station, just this old train, which takes you to the pagoda Linh Phuoc district. Think on such trains you haven't skated, I somehow reminded of the movie "Wild Wild West" and, well, generally one can imagine how the train attack Indians or burglars).
