Discover Dalat, The City of Eternal Spring

- A Secret Retreats journey -
4 days / 3 nights
from 560 USD /person



This journey has been personally designed by Pham Dac Kham, the author of this journey, who lives in Hanoi: “There is a bug that nothing can cure, the travel bug! I am passionate about my work, I practice it with faith, dignity and humility. Client satisfaction is my daily goal.”

All our itineraries have generally been constructed on the basis of the rooms that have the most charm or best view, and not necessarily the first prices, nor the most expensive suites.
We can of course adjust according to your request.

Highlights of the Journey:

  • Bao Dai King’s Summer Palace
  • Tuyen Lam Lake
  • Datanla waterfall

Called sometimes the “city of poetry”, the “city of love”, the “city of eternal spring”, or again the “city of thousands of pines”, Dalat is a well preserved jewel of Vietnam. Perched on the mountains, the hill town has long been a popular escape in the region for getaways since French colonial times. The region is famous for its refreshingly cool climate (from November to around March, temperatures hover at about 10°C) and beautiful scenery, situated on a plateau 1,500 meters above sea level. The retreat is a suitable place for relaxation and an excellent destination for a getaway from the busy and noisy of the city's life, with its wide variety of flowers, vegetables and fruit from its surrounding farmlands as well as countless nature sites, evergreen forests and minority villages.

Upon landing, you will be welcomed at the airport then transferred to your resort just outside Dalat (30mn).

After breakfast, we take a city tour in Dalat: we start with the old railway station built in the colonial era to take an old train to the village of Trai Mat (7km) and visit the historical Linh Phuoc Pagoda. We then explore Hang Nga Crazy House – a joyously designed, outrageously artistic private home. On the way back to Dalat, we stop at Bao Dai King’s Summer Palace and we end the day’s explorations with a visit to Xuan Huong Lake.
No arrangement for meals.

Enjoy your breakfast and today we continue our explorations around Dalat. We take a cable car to visit Tuyen Lam Lake and enjoy a panoramic view of the city. We stop for a while at the Zen Buddhist Temple Thien Vien Truc Lam, surrounded by 24 hectares of greenery. We continue driving southward to Datanla waterfall, which used to be called “Da Tam N’nha” by the native people- in the old time, fairies usually came there to take a bath. You can try the roller coaster if you like sensations. We finish the day with a visit to Love Valley, known for its amazing tranquility, beautiful landscape, tiny streams, lush green lawns and rolling hills.
No arrangement for meals.
HOTEL: Ana Mandara Villas Dalat (Villa Room)
