Enjoy the gardens, take a while to calm down and just think about the world and your soul.

The XQ embroidery is definitely worth seeing. For some reason the atmosphere is calm and relaxing, you forget the rush and can fully concentrate to environment, workers and students studying embroidery. The art works are many, from tiny to large and it's easy to understand that it can take months to complete.
Finally, you can buy from showroom and again, the service is extremely friendly and helpful. Prices are higher than I waited, but when you remember the time spend with the art.
There are many places you can follow the work, take you up to upstairs and watch the skilled women.

This massive rooster can be found from Darahoa. There is of course a reason, only some 300 inhabitants in the village. The reason is the old one: love and positive moral. The people in the village are from two minority groups: Chills and K'hos. Tradition tells that a Chill girl and a rich hunter K'Ho boy felt in love but the parents were against. The boy's father gave some tasks to the girl and the most difficult was to find a rooster with nine spurs and an elephant with nine tusks. The boy went to forests to help her and on the other day she found him dying and held him in her arms till his last breaths.
Artist Lu Truc Phuong built this giant rooster to reflect the morals and the love of these young people.

One of the newest Dalat's attraction is the Cable Car which drives along more than 2 kilometers wire to Quang Trung Reservoir. The views are stunning and you can just relax and watch Vietnamese lifestyles with a lot of open fire and smoke and the views from the cable car station over town are just great.

When HCMC's Post Office is by Eiffel here we have a replica of Eiffel's most famous "building". This is not as tall as the original, but definitely reminds us that this used to be French area.
The main purpose is to serve telecommunication but why not to build the towers so that your eyes enjoy, most of these structures are awful and ugly. This is not! One can say that it's odd to find Eiffel here, so did I first, but the more you watch it the more you like. And the communications worked in every corner of the city!

Dalat has it's on little Eiffel tower.
It's actually just a telecommunication tower that has a shape that resembles the famous Paris tower, but it stands in a very central location in town and is hard to miss and ads to Dalats reputation of being a town with quite a bit of kitch.
It's not some huge structure like in Paris, but a small telecommunication tower and it's more of an oddity than an actual sight, but i like it.

The market provides an ideal opportunity for photography with the colourful fresh vegetables, the vegetarian stands and the friendly people. Just take a stroll round there in the afternoon when people are busy purchasing produce for their evening meal.

Dalat has a really good and lively night market that is very local and certainly not made for foreign tourists.
It mostly has things that locals go shopping for and is a nice combination of a food and clothes market.
There are also plenty of places to buy a bit of food and drink so you can go there for a light dinner too if you feel like.
If you are in Dalat then you should certainly pop by the market in the evening if you have the time for it.

Da lat is one of the most famous tourist destination in Vietnam. It is a nice highland city with lovely and cool climate, and Da Lat is called “the city of eternal spring”.
If you go to Da Lat, you will see and experience beautiful landcapes and natural scenery. On the way to Da Lat, tourist can see the Prenn Falls where water falls from a height of ten meters. The foot of the falls is a small valley covered with lovely flowers and green pine trees.
Xuan Huong lake is very beautiful. It’s located at the centre of Da Lat. It is poetic site attracting visitors and lovers. The lake’s surface is as smooth as glass reflecting the shadows of pine trees.
The Valley of Love where has a quiet and romantic atmosphere is a wonderful dating place for lover. It’s marvellous with flower gardens fog and cloud floating on the top of pine tree hills, a clean blue lake…
The Lake of Sighs is anatural on the top a hill. The wind whispering through the pines trees makes visitor think of sighs from an invisible man – maybe one who has lost the love of his life.
Visiting Da Lat, tourist will have chance to see and enjoy many different kinds of flowers: orchids, roses, camellias, mimosa, cheery blossom and narcissus. Each flower has their unique beauty.

We stopped at these falls as we were leaving Dalat on our road trip down to HCMC. The falls are nice to see and walk under, but the place is all touristed up with gates and admission prices, concrete elephants, etc. The falls were flowing heavily as this was the rainy season, but they did tend to smell of sewage.
I guess it's worth seeing, but it would be good to psych up against disappointment of the whole experience.
