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

We went to this site cause it's said that there are ghosts. It's rumored that at 3.15am, when the ghosts are there, it makes the short and long fingers are at same place. In term of the architect, the building is good for photograph. However, don't try to be in the train. Although the design is like old French one,... More

The Dalat railway station is an historic landmark and is a nice place to visit while in Dalat. This station does not appear to be active, and I think the planned rails were never actually completed.

Just like stepping into an old movie scene, the building it just as it was in the old days. A great museum piece, and a very beautiful landmark. Very relaxing afternoon, checking out the gorgeous scenery. Awesome!

It doesn't take one much time to explore the train station as there isn't much to see. But I didn't regret visiting this place as the facade of the building, the ticketing booth, the gate... they are so retro... my friends and I had some fun times exploring the 2 trains on exhibit and did some role-playing for picture taking....

Dalat train cafe is a great place for a cuppa tea! Would be even better if they did biscuits or cake to go with it!

We spent about an hour here looking at the building and the trains. You can definitely image how busy if was in the past. There is a train ride to a pagoda but all depends if there is enough tourists whether it will be running, it wasn't the day we went unfortunately. You can go inside the trains and have... More
