Overseas Haven Reports
Da Lat, Vietnam | Overseas Haven Report
Best known as “Little Paris,” Da Lat is a resort town in Vietnam’s Central Highlands. Often shrouded in mist thanks to its altitude, its elevation also means year-round mild weather and pine forests, attracting plenty of expats and tourists seeking cooler climes. The climate also means an abundance of local produce available no matter the month.
Da Lat is Vietnam’s honeymoon capital, often called the Valley of Love, offering flower gardens, swan-shaped paddleboats, a miniature Eiffel Tower, and much more to the romantic at heart. Plus, golf courses for those who like to hit the links.
The city is relatively small (under 400 square kms), allowing you to get around on foot. It’s also considered a safe area, not subject to earthquakes or other natural disasters.
Perhaps the best thing about Da Lat, though, is that it can be enjoyed at an shockingly low cost. Everything from rent to health insurance to a cup of coffee is cheaper than it is back home, and you can live well here on nothing but your pension.
If you’re after peace and tranquility, rest, and relaxation, this might be the place for you.SKU: OHR-DA-LAT-VIETNAM
