this site, while I holds a bit of history, is two train cars sitting still. There is really nothing to see, not a lot of history being passed along. Mostly I was fun to see the people take wedding pics there.

It is worth visiting the railways station for its architectural flamboyance . You will also find an old locomotive as well as a few passenger cars...if you are lucky ( irregular schedule ) you could get a ticket for a short ride on a touristic train ( a 2-hour tour, including the visit of Linh Phuoc pagoda)

It's great to see this historic old station come to life in the miod morning when the little narrow gauge train departs on its 7 km journey to the astounding Pagoda at the end of the line. The short journey is highly reccomended and will help to keep the tourist railway running

This is a little way outside the centre of dalat but worth a visit just to step back in time and imagine the French mothers and fathers bringing their children to escape the summer heat, and the odd holiday romance that may have occurred. You can visit the artistic building and see some rolling stock

While not an absolute must in Da Lat, the Railway Station is good for a quick trip if you are staying in the city center. Admission is free if you just wish to peruse the site, or you can pay a fee to take a trip to the next town over. If you are lucky (or check the schedule beforehand),... More

This was included in our elephant tour. The station is old and ornate which was in itself interesting. The station also houses proper old style stream trains which you can climb onto and have pictures taken. This was pretty awesome, as you normally cant touch things like this, so that was a bonus. The train ride was nice very enjoyable.... More

It was nice to see the French architecture of this old train station. Only stop here if you're nearby, as there is not all that much to see (it'll only be a 10-15 minute stop).

Spent about a 1/2 hour here. The art deco architecture is very lovely. Our group was the only visitors there. A true gem of French influenced design. An historic landmark not to be missed.

This small former train station is a bit neglected. Although it still serves a train connection to a nearby village, nothing really happens at the station. But it gives a nice impression of the French colonial era.
