I didn’t feel like searching for the best price instead of spending another afternoon on the beach (where a resort’s watchman screwed me over big time when illegally renting me one of the exclusively for hotel guests reserved beach beds). Luckily my landlady arranged transportation to my next destination at an acceptable price.

My destination was Da Lat, called The City of Eternal Spring, a cool yet sumptuous scenic little town up in Viet Nam’s Central Highlands where already the French colonialists had sought refuge from the hot and humid weather in what used to be Saigon.

Till this day, Da Lat is a popular weekend and even honeymoon destination for Vietnamese people. this way to read the whole story >>>
