I can’t believe we’ve already been here for almost two weeks! Time has flown by and we’ve already done so much. Our second destination of the trip was Đà Lạt where we were relieved to get a breath of fresh air after being in Sài Gòn. A majority of our time in Đà Lạt was spent relaxing, exploring the city, and enjoying the mountain views.
I didn’t realize until we were already in the city that Đà Lạt is known for their flowers and we were visiting just in time for the flower festival. Unfortunately the weather was pretty grey with occasional showers while we were there but we still had plenty of opportunity to walk around and take in the scenery.
The highlights for me were relaxing with some of the best bubble tea I’ve had and exploring the Crazy House also known as Hằng Nga guesthouse. The Crazy House is unlike any structure I’ve seen and was designed by the Vietnamese architect, Đặng Việt Nga. It was a unique experience weaving in and out of the nature-inspired buildings along narrow paths.
Đà Lạt was a welcome getaway after being in the busy city for the previous week. Stay tuned for our next post about Hội An!
