Da Lat Overview:
Da Lat has known under many romantic names as the City of Loves, the Foggy City, the Pine Forest City, the Flowers City, Le petit Paris… That is a city in Lam Vien Highland, Lam Dong Province, 310km from Ho Chi Minh City to the Northwest. Situated at 1500m above the sea level, surrounding by mountains and forests, DaLat is in good temperate all year around. It used to be the residential area of Lat, Chil and K’Hor people.
In 1983, Alexandre Yersin , a French Doctor, did a survey trip from Saigon ( Ho Chi Minh City nowadays) past over the land of Ethnic people in the highland to the central coast. On June 21, 1983, Alexandre Yersin has reached Lam Vien Highland. In 1987, French Governor, Mr. Paul Doumer wanted to find a place to built a resort for French officers and people who were living in Viet Nam and he decided to choose Lam Vien highland, that submission was from Doctor Alexandre Yersin.
In the beginning of 20th century, Da Lat was a deserted area. French people were built up many constructions as Villas, Offices, Hotels, School and even a tourist center. Da Lat became the best romantic City in Viet Nam thanks to its wonderful scenes with natural lakes, mountains, valleys, pines forests and hundreds kinds of flowers. That was not just a Little Paris but Paradise.
Nowadays, Da Lat became one of the main destinations for local people to choose for their vacation. Hundreds of Hotels were built, tourists can find very easy either a guest house or a Hotel 5*. Unfortunately, the waves of immigrants and the rushing urbanization processing were destroyed the gifts from nature to this area.
Many Pine forest were gone, replaced for new constructions or farm of agriculture. The old romantic City has replaced by a modern City which is “self- developed”, without planning.
Da Lat be changed her face!
