Situated 1,500 metres above sea level, this retreat town also offers a refreshingly cool climate compared to other cities in Vietnam, where it can get very hot and humid during summer.

The best hotels in Da Lat are set within a tranquil landscape of flowers, waterfalls, farmlands, lakes, springs, and colonial French structures, making them ideal retreats for travelers looking to escape Vietnam’s busy cityscape. Also known as ‘Le Petit Paris’, the hill town of Dalat offers plenty of natural and manmade attractions for history buffs and nature lovers, including Pongour Falls, Datanla Waterfalls, Xuan Huong Lake, Emperor Bao Dai’s Summer Palace, and Lam Ty Ni Pagoda (or Mad Monk Temple).
