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.

Dalat railway station is only small but seemed to be very busy but fairly organised. The trains carriages were very quaint but reasonable comfortable, it was just a bit of a challenge to find a seat once you were able to board. The trip itself showed just how much of Dalat is covered in gardens of many types, vegetables, flowers,... More

The station is very well peeserved and still operates for short train trips. Although the old steam engine no longer operates it is still in good condition along with the old carriages. The station house also has a story in itself. The train track is also unique with its central cog track for the extra traction for the local hills.... More

Taking a train to Traimat - around 10 kms from Dalat, you will see a totally different life. It used the very old train machine with some development, slowly bring you to the indochine time, when Dalat is called "the nurse of Indochina". The structure of this building and its history also good for discovering.

The most funny writing is at the entrance on a simple notice: It claims that the train goes from Dalat to Hanoi... This is a good wish ... but unfortunately the rails have been dismantled by some peoples that lacked iron in their regime.... The fabulous Swiss locomotives have been sold back to Switzerland railways as their mechanical value was... More

Used to get to the pagoda a train goes twice a day and doesnt cost a lot, good views along the way of rice fields and vegetable growing patches. you get off for about an hour to explore the pagoda and then takes you back.

To me the Dalat Railway Station is not the sort of attraction you'd visit for its own sake (unless your were a real train fan) but as part of a trip to Trai Mat it took the whole experience up a notch to start in such an interesting and distinctive building.. An old steam train is a feature beside the... More

Not really much there but if you have spare time it's OK. Interesting old rail terminal in pretty good shape. There;s an old train engine which you can explore.

My husband has an interest in French architecture was really looking forward to seeing this station, we found the station fairly run down, so much could be down to restore its former grandeur..disappointing Art Deco.

This was a surprise. An amazing Art Deco style train station in the heart of the Vietnamese Highlands. Built in 1938, based on a design by a group of French architects, it's a one-off structure that combines essential Art Deco motifs, with design features of local highland buildings, notably the high pitched roofs. It's quite amazing outside, and inside it... More
