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.

The building is a beautiful historic place. Train station is a place of meeting and bidding goodbye to friends and relatives. The old steam engine is a romantic place to take wedding picture. Small place but with unique architecture. Good for a short visit.

I made a quick stop by this station as it was right outside my hotel. I decided to opt out of the half-day experience to the nearby town (maybe some day) as I had a lot of other things to do in Dalat proper. I'm not sure if I "enjoyed" the five seconds it took to look at the station.... More

124 000 VDN to take the train both ways. About 10-15 minutes ride and will get you to Linh Phuoc Pacoda. They leave you about 45-50 minutes to visit and then go back to the train station. The ride was ok, I was excepting a little more scenery.

Trip to the train station can be taken very optionally, depending on your time or interest. You can either come here just to see the station and on this occasion you don't need to plan hours of time to do that. The station has an amazing look but doesn't take long to cover up. You literally only need about sixty... More

If architecture is your thing this is worth seeing, it's unique for the area. It must have been perry found breaking when it was built.

Not much to see and the train only goes a short distance. There are better places to spend your time.

Not so sure what others (previous comments) saw, but I only saw a old & poorly maintained Train Station. YES! there are not many of that kind in the country, but that didn't made it special! So all there is to do is giving the French credit for building it 100 years ago, and the Vietnamese for not ruin it... More

I just visited the station. I did not take the train ride. The architecture of the station was interesting. However, it could use some TLC.The old train locomotive was a nice touch. Worth a quick stop by if in the area and want a bit of History.
