Dalat Railway Station, Da Lat

2.3
#25 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.

  • A scene of the film literally came into the same old train station. People are too small in the Park filming long but also does not lack in the eyes. Like street buskers were very much up for grabs, even foreign, did not really come to playing very amazed.

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.
