Xuan Huong Lake, Da Lat

3.8
#3 of 11 in Nature in Da Lat
Water Body Nature / Park
A sweeping crescent of mirror-still waters, Xuan Huong Lake stretches through the heart of the city. A man-made lake created in the early 20th century, the spot has become an icon of Dalat and a local hub for leisurely recreation. Explore by foot and wander a 7 km (4.3 mi) path, passing around the lake through a pine forest, flower gardens, and coffee shops. Then, hop on a swan pedal boat and glide elegantly across the surface of the 43 ha (106.6 ac) lake. You can rent tandem bikes, or simply sit under the flourishing conifers and admire the relaxed scenery.

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.
