Dalat Railway Station, Da Lat

2.3
#23 of 117 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.

Where to stay in Da Lat

Long considered a summer retreat town, Da Lat offers plenty of accommodations, great and small, to choose from. Head down to the lake to find the most luxurious options in town, with old French colonial buildings featuring lake-view rooms, spas, and fine-dining restaurants, as well as some newer resort-style options offering ample grounds, golf courses, and scenic views. Head back from the water and the colonial areas to discover simpler hotels and guesthouses, with comfortable rooms, Wi-Fi, and breakfast included, as well as a number of dormitory-style hostels.
