Hotels in Dalat

Dalat is located on a verdant plateau containing pine forests and lakes 300 kilometres northeast of Ho Chi Minh City. At 1,500 meters above sea level, Dalat's cool climate provides a pleasant respite from the heat and humidity of the lowlands and for this reason the French developed it into a summer retreat in the early 1900's. Dalat's colonial influences can still be seen in its cathedral and some of the 2,000 French villas which dot the town. The town has a relaxed atmosphere and is very popular with Vietnamese holiday makers, especially honeymooners.
