My second day in Da Lat

Da Lat located in the South Central Highlands of Vietnam, was originally the playground of the French who built billas in the clear mountain air to escape the heat and humidity of the coast and of Ho Chi Minh City. Many of its hotels and houses are built in a French style. The city spreads across a series of pine-covered hills with a small lake in the center and surrounded by higher peaks, making for some lovely scenery quite different from the rest of Vietnam. The temperatures there quite cooling like Cameron Highlands.

Dalat's high altitude (1500-2000m) and fertile landscape make it one of Vietnam's premier agricultural areas producing varieties of fruits, vegetables and flowers that don't grown in the lowlands.

15th May 2009

After breakfast, we decided to walk to Ben Thanh Market and take alook. It quite big inside and sell alot of things but most of the things has no price indicated on it and need to ask and bargain. At the end, we didn't get anything.

like our "Sim Lim Complex"

After we check out, we proceed to Airport by Taxi (VND120,000 or USD7) and it takes about 20-30mins depend on the traffic. Our flight is 2.20pm (HCMC time) and we still have 1hr plus to walk in the Airport. The food inside Airport quite expensive and nothing much to eat - one big bun can cost you USD4. Finally, reach Singapore 5.20pm on schedule. Home Sweet Home.
