Dalat, some touristic musts

City center
City center seen from the highest point of the crazy house
Roundabout at the main square
Dalat's oldest tree in blossom (50 y/o)
City center and Xuan Huong lake at night
Dalat cathedral
Difficult to orientate in the crazy house
One of the rooms of the guesthouse
Bao Dai's (the last emperor of Vietnam) Summer Palace
Waiting room and interiors in Art Deco style
Old fashioned infrared sauna from Rouathermique used
by empress Nam Phuong
It even has a timer.
Nothing known on internet about this device
Prenn waterfall
View from a small cable car
Once you're there, why not dress like the hill tribe people
or take a ride on an elephant
Or on an ostrich
The way to the cable cars is via a rope bridge
and through a tree.
The gardens at Thien Vien Truc Lam
Zen Buddhist monastery
A huge 300 y/o tamarind bonzai tree
Tuyen Lam lake
Cable car from the monastery back to Dalat

Villa's in the French quarter

Original ticket office

Japanese C12-type 2-6-2T steam locomotive
model 131-428 aka Tiny star (Chīsana hoshi)
A sign near the piston mentions the brand Friedmann.
The rest is in Japanese (or Chinese?)
The original meters were replaced by Russian
