Transfer to Da Lat, dinner and overnight
Da Lat is a city in the central highlands of Vietnam, the capital of Lam Dong Province. Located on the Langbian plateau at about 1475 meters above sea level. It is located 1491 km from Hanoi and 300 km from Ho Chi Minh City. The economy of the city is formed by agriculture (growing fruits, flowers, strawberries, grapes, coffee), winemaking, and tourism. And Da Lat is one of the centers of Vietnamese science.
Although the city is relatively young (founded in 1893), it has a lot of attractions: Xuan Huong Lake, the summer residence of the last emperor Bao Dai, the old railway, the local history museum, the Love Valley flower park, many pagodas and other places of worship.
One of the hallmarks of Dalat is a unique museum and hotel called the Crazyhouse. Here you can wander through the bizarre labyrinths for a long time and take a lot of crazy photos.
Hang Nga Hotel with unique architecture (so-called "Crazy House") is a boarding house, cafe and art gallery at the same time. Crazy House, known for its unique architecture, is 3 km from Da Lat Railway Station.
The hotel consists of four houses made in the form of fabulous caves. There are giant spiders, mythical animals, tree branches, creepers on the walls. At the same time, it is very light here - the sun's rays penetrate through the wide large windows.
It was designed by Mrs. Dang Viet Nga (daughter of the second president of Vietnam), a graduate of the Moscow Architectural Institute. Therefore, in some details of the Crazy House in Da Lat, there are motifs of Russian folk tales.
The clay village is an amusement park where many houses and sculptures are made in a unique "clay" style.
A clay theme park opened in Da Lat in 2012. This park has several names: Clay Village, Sculpture Tunnel, Clay Town, Red Trench. Park creator Ba Dung has developed a way to turn clay into a material as strong as concrete. A fabulous city was created in a trench on the hills, where you can feel like a midget. Here, in the form of clay copies, there are also local attractions that you will see in Da Lat itself.
