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.

If you have the time, take the train for 30 minutes to the pagoda worth a ride. Its nice to see an old locomotive and what this station look like at the time. The clocks on the wall represents what was important at the time and at the present time.

If you are interested in old places, this rail station is a perfect one in Dalat. I was talked that this is the oldest one in Indochina. There is an old wagon, old machine for you to explore, inside there is an old car and old ticket booth. This place is popular for wedding photos or romantic ones. The train... More

Disappointed. We took the trip to Trai Mat, but unfortunately there were no more nice view along the rail. My friend took the trip some years ago and he talked about flowers fields and strawberry farms along the rail. However, we did not see much farms. Instead, there are many houses along the rail.

Inside the station you will find a stationery engine, we were told it had French origins, and a diesel train which pulls three carriages. The carriages are old and the seats very hard. The journey takes you past a lot of greenhouses. Worth a visit.

This is a good half hour walk uphill, but worth it. The station is left as if time stood still, with weeds growing over the tracks, and trains at the platform. There's a lovely cafe here too, in one of the old carriages, and there's a lovely relaxed atmosphere with people chatting and singing. Really lovely way to spend an... More

We came here as part of an organised tour and were told this was the "best bit" and they were saving it for last. We therefore had pretty high expectations. It's no wonder, therefore, that when we arrived there was absolutely nothing special about it. It's literally an old railway station. We didn't get on a train, so I presume... More

Dalat's old railway station is a nice enough building, but the primary reason for visiting a railway is to take the train! Unfortunately, and despite a published timetable, the train only departs if there are 20 or more customers. However, the staff are totally indifferent to people arriving and do not generally staff the ticket office. We arrived at 11.30... More

Not a lot to do at this place, but it's good for a quick visit. There are 2 trains and carriages to pose in front of for photos. We got a caricature drawn on wood for our children but regretted it. The drawings were okay, but they made our daughter look angry and our son look sad. The wood started... More

It's just an old railway station, but a nice bit of French colonial history. It's prettily restored, and there's an old Japanese locamotive and restaurant car. Worth a little detour when going around the city.

This station has an interesting history and interesting architecture but it is small and not very well maintained. There are some trains behind the building. We didn't take the train ride so I can't comment on that.
