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.

This was a great place to visit. We had a train journey on an open air train. Very interesting. We were part of a tour group.

A popular and charming spot for wedding photographs, linking the idea of setting out on the journey into married life with the picturesque old railway station, with its wooden and iron lace carriages, and train lines stretching into the distance. Look out for the Mail Box with its French "Lettres" sign, and the waiting room, all wood with deep buttoned... More

A look back into the French period in Dalat. This was their holiday destination and the architecture reflects that, especially the station. There is a tourist train that goes for some distance through the outskirts to a little village where there is a giant Bhudda which is worthwhile seeing, especially the carvings and the dragon made out of beer bottles.

We caught the first train of the day, arriving early so that we could get our pick of seats - we sat right at the back so we could watch the landscape pass by. This is a very quaint, old train that is well maintained, providing a fun ride up to the Pagoda. A bottle of water is included in... More

This structure seems to be unique in Vietnam and is certainly in original condition - much the same as when the railway was closed I imagine. The waiting room with coloured glass panels and old ticket windows evoke memories of a bygone era and thankfully it has not been commercialised - yet. The tourist train to Trai Mat is excellent...

The front of the building is lovely, but the inside is beautiful; old leather couches and painted glass (rather than stained glass) windows. Trains do still run from here 5 times a day (subject to actually having passengers.) Out back, where the tracks are, there's an steam engine that I believe is being revamped.

The trains don't always show up on time (or at all) but the train station is a really cool old building in a state of decay. Fun to poke around and explore, or just hang out and relax.

I f you have time do try and have a look at this lovely rail station. Only 6 tourist trains operate from it during the day and only for 10 miles. There is an original steam engine there and a couple of carriages for the technically minded.
