    4 stars

    Fewer tourists venture to Pongour Waterfall given its distance from Da Lat and that means the falls is almost free of tourist kitsch. Pongour is worth the journey and if you had to choose just one waterfall to visit while in Da Lat, we’d rank this over both Datanla and Elephant ... read more

  • Crazy House
    4 stars

    Crazy House lives up to its name. It is crazy, as well as wacky, eccentric and weird.

    3.5 stars

    Built in 1940, Linh Son Pagoda is a peaceful respite located on a small hill in the city and a stroll through here is a quiet pleasure.
