Day 3: Saigon – Dalat (B/L/) (30 km)
An early morning departure is necessary to get the first riding of the trip completed. Drive straight to Da Lat and cycle fantastic country lanes and back roads in the shadow of Langbian mountain. The roads will be virtually traffic less, and it is a great way to get the feel of cycling in Vietnam. Dalat was established as a hill resort at the beginning of th last century by homesick French colonials who were attracted to its cool, spring- like weather, pine forests, water -falls and lakes. Many reminders of Dalat’s colonial past can be seen in the hundreds of European style villas, chalets and other buildings still standing around town. One fine example is the cream-colored art deco villa that was onec the summer home of Vietnam’s last emperor, BAO DAI. Another slightly grander example of Dalat’s colonial architecture is the superbly restored Dalat Palace Hotel overlooking the central Xuan Huong lake. On the opposite side of Xuan Huong Lake is Vietnam first golf course, originally built for Emperor Bao Dai and recently restored,it is nowone of the top courses in the region.Aprt from its colonial heritage Dalat is known in Vietnam for it market gardens growing,everthing from carrots and cauliflowers to avacado and bananas as well as many varieties of flowers. For Vietnamese Dalat means romance, and with attractions like the valley of love it is the destination for choice for local honey mooners. A few kms from Dalat,at the base of Mount Langbian is the village of the Lat ethnic minority from whom Dalat takes its name. The Rugged country around Mount Lang offers some great off road and on road biking opportunities. From Dalat the fertile plateau of the Central High land stretches northwards for hundreds of kilometers.
