The French Quarter, Da Lat

(2.7/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Located just off the city centre resides the calming atmosphere of The French Quarter. Notice how unusual this part is to the rest of the city as it houses various French style villas that were built during the 19th century when the French colonised the area. It was regarded as somewhere where they would stay during the summers. Most are abandoned and you can enter them which provide an eerily beautiful insight into what was once a very busy area. Plan to visit The French Quarter and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Da Lat attractions using our Da Lat trip itinerary builder.

  • You will find in Dalat, more than in other places, huge cultural references to the French occupation. the quartier Français is well worth seeing as a curio of what was. Free entrance.  more »
