Da Lat – the “City of Eternal Spring”

Dalat is called “City of Eternal Spring” because of its mild climate all year round with amazing botanical gardens. Nowadays Dalat remains its natural beauty, the city of thousand flowers, and the destination for lovers in the eyes of the Vietnamese.

It seems to be the favorite place for young couples to get married. Honeymooners spend their memorable days shooting photo album and paddling on somewhat kitschy swan boats on the picturesque Tuyen Lam lake.

Da Lat is well-known for its Botanical Flower Gardens, a pleasant attraction to visit during any warm and romantic morning or afternoon. It is a well-kept feature, displaying many arrays of flowers including fuchsias, orchids, and roses.  From any public gardens to local farms, people are to be drown in the beauty flowers and sunshine. The best time to see this vast charming “speciality” is in winter, especially in December and January during which the Flower Festival is held.

One thing to remember is that just because we’re on a holiday, that doesn’t give us many reasons to splurge too much money on fine restaurants.  Da Lat night market is the best way to fall in love with the authenticity and heart of the Vietnamese cuisine.  I don’t see a better way than spending my night in packed streets spoiling my senses on grilled corn, sweet potatoes and corn cakes cooked over flaming charcoal… delicious!  The night market is also a great opportunity for those travel photographers to document the eventful lifestyle and culture of Da Lat community.
