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

The old buildings, still show what was, and the 7Km track is perhaps not a "real" train trip, but seeing this its not hard to, imagine how guest and good might ones have arrived and the life that might have been.

The art deco building is a little jaded and faded, but it's worth a look, even if you don't catch the train.

A lovely way to pass a couple of hours, really nice and relaxing trip through the countryside, could do with a bit more structure to the timetable but other than that it can be faulted

Dalat's railway station is for tourists only these days but a visit and ride out of town past the market gardens and greenhouses is well worth the dollars. You also get a taste of the French influence as you pass some of the large houses in town. The toilet facilities in the station are somewhat basic!

Riding here with our easyrider guide was probably more interesting thing to do. The building makes for a good photo, the old trains sit on tracks but only a used for dining rooms from the cafe. A train does run but not for a great distance as most of the line was destroyed by the Americans. In its day it... More
