Dalat - city of eternal spring

 
Dalat, called the city of eternal spring or the city of love, is probably one of Vietnam’s most well-known vacation destinations. The city of eternal spring has long been popular with Vietnamese and foreigners because of its flowers, weather, landscapes and tourist sites.

Set next to Xuan Huong Lake, the Dalat Flower Gardens were established in 1966 by the Vietnamese government, and are tended continually. Among the tastefully arranged flora are orchids, hydrangeas, fuchsias, roses, white narcissus, and ferns.

The orchid, named “queen of the world of flowers”, is a common sight wherever you go in Dalat. Among the world’s 100,000 species of orchids, Vietnam already has 500, many of which grow in Dalat. Annually, Dalat explodes in a riot of color when its Flower Festival begins in October or sometimes December.

Dalat is known for its market gardens which grow everything from carrots and cauliflowers to avocados and bananas as well as many varieties of flowers.

The market covers two blocks with more than 1,300 shops. On the ground floor of Block A merchants sell flowers, household appliances and other Dalat specialties.

Dalat is also famous for its mild climate. Climatologists call Dalat the “city of eternal spring” because its highest temperature is 24ºC and its lowest temperature is 15ºC. The annual average rainfall is 1,755mm. The dry season starts from December to March and the rainy season is from April to November. The city enjoys the sun in all the seasons. Thanks to the weather, the city of eternal spring has colorful gardens all year round.

Tourists get a deep impression of Dalat’s tourists sites such as Bao Dai Summer Palaces, Crazy House, Langbian Mountain, Lat Village, Linh Son Pagoda, and Truc Lam Pagoda.

Dalat’s three palaces are referred to simply as Palace 1, Palace 2, and Palace 3. The palaces were all completed by the French, but only Palace 3 was a royal home. It was owned by the last emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty, Bao Dai. You can find it on Le Hong Phong Road, about a quarter of a mile southwest of Dalat’s central district. The palace is open to the public.

The Crazy House rises about five storeys above its suburban neighbors into the skyline, great sweeps of black and yellow concrete, bizarrely shaped glass openings, beautifully peach-coloured walkways that are a cross between a tunnel and cave, and sculptured rooftops that appear menacing.

Dalat has many beautiful waterfalls, pine forests, and lakes such as Xuan Huong, Than Tho, Da Thien, Van Kiep, and Me Linh.

Xuan Huong Lake extends directly into the downtown area and is dotted with villas and cafes. Dan Thien Lake and Chien Thang Lake are a couple of miles from the center. Legends about lovers who came to sad ends surround the lakes.

Than Tho Lake is located 5km northeast of the city centre. Like many of Dalat’s sights, a tragic love story took place at the lake. A young woman, who wrongly believed her lover has died, drowned herself in Than Tho Lake. Since then the surrounding pine trees have sighed in grief.

Prenn Waterfall, which is a major attraction for Vietnamese and foreign tourists, tumbles over a wide overhang and into a large pool below. A path circles around the pool so that visitors can walk behind the waterfall and look out through the curtain of water.

Recently, a delegation from the Organizing Board for Miss Universe has conducted a survey in Dalat amongst other provinces and cities to look for a venue to host the competition in 2008.

With the above typical features of the city of eternal spring, Dalat full expects to be selected as one of the venues to host Miss Universe 2008.
