Your next stop is Datanla Waterfall, a waterfall that not only offers great natural vistas, but also a small rollercoaster and a host of activities. For more of a historical and cultural visit, move on to the Bao Dai King's Summer Palace next. Enjoy access to all 25 rooms in the palace and the exquisite gardens. Stop for lunch in your free time, where your guide can help you find the right spot to eat according to your taste and requirements.   Next, onto the Dalat Flower Park, known as the Paradise of Flowers with a rich collection of local and foreign flower types. Find roses, Hydrangeas, Orchids, and Cactus among other plants here. Head on to your next stop, the Golden Statue of Sakyamuni Buddha, before proceeding to Dalat City Cathedral. Famous for its bronze rooster on top of the tower, it’s known as the “Church or the chicken” and is styled in the European Gothic Architectural style since 1931.  Finish off your tour either in Dalat itself to continue exploring in the late afternoon or with a drop-off at your city accommodation.

Even take a peek inside one of the hidden caves and stand behind the waterfall. Then move onto the buddhist temple located next to the waterfall with memorable giant Lady Buddha and Happy Buddha statues. Next up is a visit to a local village that specializes in craft activities such as making rice wine and preparing coffee. See the activities in situ, with demonstrations of what the coffee bean is like, the process of preparing Vietnamese coffee, and enjoying your own cup of it right there in the coffee plantation.  A few last nature stops before you head back to Dalat — Pongour Waterfall, one of the most beautiful in Vietnam, and Paradise Lake.  And just when you thought you couldn’t fit more in, head to “Chicken Village” — a local village with the largest chicken sculpture in Vietnam standing at 4.5 meters.   Sit back and relax with a transfer back to your accommodation in Dalat in the late afternoon after your fun-packed day.
