Da Lat: spring forever

Da Lat is a former french settlement, they were escaping the striking heat of Saigon during the summer. Therefore one can see that a lot of old villas and a french flair is still present. Now it became a center for horticulture with its ever spring weather. For the tourist it is a great place for outdoor activities which is almost impossible elsewhere due to the killing heat.

I therefore went canyoning, which was great! Rapelling waterfalls, ziplining and jumping. Luckily Christine did not join, I think she would still hate me by now otherwise.

After the adrenaline doses we took a beautifull cabelcar ride to a nice Zen relaxing pagoda.

Da lat is a great place to stay for a bit longer and I regret we did not have more time for hiking, biking and rice wine tasting.
