The centrepiece of Dalat, the Xuan Huong Lake, is currently an empty dustbowl, and has been so for months apparently. We were told last night by a local that it would be this way for another 12 months.
Unfortunately, this means this city has lost much of its appeal. If it wasn't bad enough that the jewel in the crown is empty, the hundreds of truck movements an hour, carrying dirt out of the town and south towards HCMC make it even worse.
As far as I'm concerned, Dalat is closed for maintenance until mid 2011.
