Traveling to Dalat (Lam Dong) at year-end, tourists can relish the cool air and celebrate a wonderful Christmas in the following cathedrals.


Con ga (Chicken) Church

Chicken Church is one of the oldest architectures of the misty city. Atop the cross of the bell tower, there is a unique chicken-shaped lightning rod; that’s the reason why it’s called Chicken Church, Zing News reported.
