The life around the lake is wonderful. Dalat people do exercise very early morning, from the little girl to elderly people. It is very green also around the lake. Sometimes, there are street sellers and they are quite sticky. And the lake needs a regular cleaning...

Having travelled around Vietnam quite a lot, Dalat wasn't as good as other places. However this lake was probably the best bit about the town itself. There are two restaurants on the lake which light up at night and are very pretty. Its a nice lake worth having a casual walk around.

Don't waste your time, partly stagnant lake with plenty of rubbish littering the edges. The paddle boat Swans are in need of a desperate spruce up, the price to hire one is now 60000. Give it a miss.

Located right in he heart of Da Lat, you'll probably see Xuan Huong during your stay. There aren't any landmarks around the lake to take photos of (such as Hoan Kiem Lake in Ha Noi), but there doesn't really need to be. Just go relax, have a cup of coffee, or enjoy the view from your hotel if you are... More

The lake is a nice sight, but nothing really worth a trip. The good thing is it's a 5 minutes walk from the town center. You can do swan pedalo boat and probably other activities. We just walked by the lake, and we considered having seen it.

Right at the middle of the center, the scenery is equally great at night or early morning. Have a coffee & overlook the lake would be absolutely nice! Try it!

When I first saw this lake and the city of Dalat around it over multiple levels, I had to think of Arosa in Switzerland. We walked all the way around this lake to get to several of the sights. It appears to be popular to rent a tandem to get around on the good quality street. We also saw many... More

This place is perfect to sit and relax with a loved one in the evenings. The city night market is next to it, so buy a cup of warm soya and some food and snuggle up when the temperature starts to dip. Perfect ambience for the end of the day.

Totally fall in love with it at first sight. The lake, the food around the bank, the people. They're all so nice.

The lake was clean and beautiful. At night, there were reflections of street lights and restaurant lights from the lake. We can cycling around the lake through the very good condition road. There were bikes renting along the side of the road. I still wish to be there again though the last time it took me a whole day on... More
