If you depart from Da Lat at 5 a.m., you can fully enjoy the view of the sun’s shining golden rays through the white mist.

However, note that this road has many thick fogs and narrow corners. You shouldn’t try to hold the wheel if you can’t.

Or you can also take a trip to explore the tranquil lake on the children’s rafts.

Here are some advices for visitors to have a fantastic trip to Da Lat

You should go to Dalat in the low season to limit the crowded situation and the expensive cost. Because on regular occasions, you will have more options to stay than during the Tet holidays. Because of these specials, rooms in Da Lat are always run out and the team’s price is very high compared to regular days. You can find most of the big guys in the hotel industry in Da Lat: Muong Thanh, Pullman, Intercontinental… and the price for these 5-star hotels from 100 USD/night. If you choose a high-class room around Xuan Huong Lake and near Da Lat market, the price ranges from 400 to 1 million VND for a room with a balcony overlooking the lake or a good view. For self-contained rooms just for resting, the price ranges from 150,000 to 300,000 for a single bedroom.

The best self-sufficient Da Lat travel experience is to avoid the flower festival season and spring (December to March next year). Therefore, if you want to rest and enjoy the quiet atmosphere, you should not go to Dalat on weekends and Tet holidays.
