“A reminder of a colonial past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

The French Quarter in Dalat sits on the slopes above the man made Xuan Huong Lake.. many of these elegant chateau typr houses are empty and some have falen into disrepair but there is enough there to show a reasonable glimpse into Dalat's colonial past when the place was used as a summer retreat by the French living in southern Vietnam to escape the heat and humidity of Saigon and surrounds. Worth a look for the sake of seeing the architecture alone.

“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

I'm not sure if I went to the right place on THD, but the houses I saw were nice, but nothing that was jaw dropping. But, it is a decent sight to see, since the houses are nice.
