Man Nguyen Private Vietnam Tour Packages – Private Little Paris of Viet Nam (4D3N)My 100% customised Private Tour Packages are ideal if you are a group planning to visit Vietnam for 4D3N (4 Days 3 Nights).
Established by French colonialists in the 1890s, Da Lat began life as an agricultural research station. Later it became an Alpine-style retreat with hotels, spas and boarding schools for the offspring of the then ruling classes. Many French designed municipal buildings, churches and grand villas from the art-deco period can still be seen today.
Located 1500m up in Vietnam’s south-central Highlands, Da Lat’s modern airport is just 75 minutes flying time from Da Nang and 55 minutes from Saigon (HCMC).
Surrounded by fragrant pine forests, Da Lat remains popular with domestic tourists. It is a favourite honeymoon destination for Vietnamese newly-weds. And still a summer retreat for many with its temperate climate.
Our international visitors are now discovering the beauty of Da Lat. Coffee and tea plantations abound. Its fertile landscape means the city is a major producer of vegetables such as broccoli, asparagus and artichokes. While its most enduring Asian export is a wide variety of European flowers.
We ‘meet & greet’ at Lien Khuong International Airport arrivals lounge and transfer you the 30km through pine forests to your Da Lat hotel for check-in. On our way we visit the beautiful landscaped Flower Park, Xuan Huong Lake and the city’s famous ‘Crazy House‘. We head out again in the evening for our Da Lat City Food Tour and night market, when most of the street vendors open for business (food included). We visit the most popular street stalls and hidden alleyways plus Da Lat’s ever-busy night market.
Today is our Full-Day Da Lat City Tour. Our visits include: the 1938 Art Deco Da Lat Railway Station for a unique 7km train ride to Linh Phuoc Pagoda, the French Quarter and its villas, our Catholic ‘Rooster’ Cathedral and attractive royal residence of Emperor Bao Dai occupied by our king until 1954. We include an authentic Vietnamese lunch.
Late afternoon we return you to your hotel
