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

I was never into Thomas the Tank Engine when I was young, nor did I have a model railway in my teens. Been on few train journeys in my life too but was surprisingly fascinated by the old dalat station and it's offerings. The impressive waiting area is trapped in the past and it's easy to imagine the happenings over... More

We went there for fun and it was. You can touch the old trains, go inside the locomotive and pretend you were there. fun place...in a playful way. That is why I gave it a 4.

I visited close to sunset and the atmosphere was magic. Young girls taking pictures and selfies with the trains, local kids playing football on platform and waiting hall with old leather chairs in the sunset light. Just sit and relax.

You can spend an interesting half our checking out this oldest train station in Vietnam, unfortunately there is no real info there, you better read up on details online before going. Very nice to check out the 1930 locomotive that you can actually get into and play with all the switches and levers. This seems to be a very popular... More
