Hidden away in the Central Highlands, Dalat plays the cooler cousin to Vietnam’s seaside destinations. Famous for its countryside charm, Dalat draws couples, wellness seekers, and outdoor enthusiasts. This mountain resort town was once a summer getaway for the French, who left their mark in the European-inspired architecture and countless lakes. Dalat’s main lake is the center of the action, but amazing natural wonders await in the hills all around.
Ankroet is the most beautiful land and place that was discovered by Dr. Yersin. This is also considered a suitable land for resort and development in the future.
