Up in the central highland of Vietnam, Dalat was first found by Dr. Alexandre Yersin and soon became the most favorable holiday destination among Europeans. Today, everybody here will be smitten by the comfortable alpine climate and the romantic French feel.
Famed as the City of Eternal Spring, Da Lat is blessed with the perfect climate. Romantic lakes and a booming flower industry make Da Lat the honeymoon capital of Vietnam.

The cleanly fresh air and abundant cafes captivate more and more foreigners, especially French and Italian. Bao-Dai, the last Vietnamese Emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty, built up his summer palace in Da Lat and nowadays some sadly yet dramatically romantic stories about him and his wife Empress Nam Phuong can still be read from every corner in the house.
