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.

Picturesque and worth a pop in for a little walk around if you are in the area. I think we were there about 15 min. It was actually more interesting to see the newlywed couples having their professional photos taken. There were three separate sets when we stopped by!

I enjoyed this place because I love the art deco era. I would like to see it a little better maintained, but the furniture and decoration is really special. Well worth a visit I have to say that in general I really enjoy Dalat because I found that people do not hassle you for business here.

The history of the station is very interesting-even if you are not a train fan-and the building is atmospheric. The old steam train is beautiful and has been converted in to a pleasant cafe. The train journey through the surrounding countryside to a small town is enjoyable and on arrival you can visit an amazing buddhist temple-turn right out of... More
