In its heyday, Dalat Station boasted three arrivals and departures daily. The French built the railway station itself, while the zigzagging tracks were planned and implemented by the Swedish, experts in tricky terrain.

It's Okay but for sightseeing only

The station, the train is superb, very beautiful and has good French style but beside that, there are nothing to see here.

Went there but not at a good time to go for a ride. You can look around old historic station for about 20 mins max after that it gets boring unless a bride turns up for a photo shoot (as you do). Setting out on a journey in life.....makes sense lol . Don't go unless you are sure you will... More

My husband and I are "railfans"- we love to travel by train, and enjoy all things railroad-connected, so on our recent month-long stay in Vietnam we made it a point to seek out this station and take the excursion train- the only one in Vietnam! This lovingly-restored train station is a gem- thank you Curtis King and friends!- and the... More

Found this spot a little underwhelming. Might be of interest to history buffs. Think it is one of the oldest train stations in Vietnam. We did not take the train from here to the next train station near Truc Lam Pagoda. Taking the train though might have changed or increased our review score of this place. Photos of the train...

I have visited there last month in my Dalat trip. It is a very vintage and ancient place. You could see the oldest trains of Indochina by the French. You should bring camera because it is very unique to take a picture here. Worth to go!!!

You can get one of these old trains further into the city for the experience, the second old train is a little coffee shop as far as we could tell. There did not seem to be anyone around to serve and the 10 minute trip on the train into the city seemed to be a little over priced.

But didn't have much time to explore the building as the train was about to depart. It was interesting doing the train trip and being able to view the market gardens and back yards of houses along the way.

This is a good thing to do. Take this train to Trai Mat. You get to see the terraced hills very close up. They all seem to be covered. The best thing is the huge pagodas In Trai Mat. We did not even know about these pagodas before we got there. This was one of the best pagodas we saw... More

We arrived at the station to catch early train upto the Pagoda, train was fully booked. Lesson learned, pre book. As we were time poor we never got to go there but will certainly go there on our next visit to Dalat.

The building is a beautiful historic place. Train station is a place of meeting and bidding goodbye to friends and relatives. The old steam engine is a romantic place to take wedding picture. Small place but with unique architecture. Good for a short visit.
