DALAT

Dalat is quite different from anywhere else you'll visit in Vietnam. You would almost be forgiven for thinking you'd stumbled into the French Alps in springtime. This was certainly how the former colonists treated it - escaping to their chalets to enjoy the cooler climate. The French feel is compounded by a radio mast shaped like the Eiffel Tower and the local bohemian artists' predilection for swan-ning around in berets. Dalat is small enough to remain charming, and die surrounding countryside is blessed with lakes, waterfalls, evergreen forests and gardens. Local products include silk, garden vege-tables and flowers (especially beautiful hydrangeas), which are sold all over southern Vietnam. But the biggest contribution to the economy is tourism: more than 800,000 do - mestic tourists and another 80,000 foreigners visit here every year. It's the country's favour ite honeymoon spot and still retains the final word in Vietnamese kitsch. The Dalat area was once famous for hunting and a 1950s brochure boasted that "a two-hour drive from the town leads to several game-rich areas abounding in deer, roe, peacocks, pheasants, wild boar, black bear. wild caws, panthers, tigers, gaurs and elephants'. So successful were the hunters that all of the big game is now extinct. The closest you'll get to the formerly diverse fauna are the taxidermied specimens about town. The city's population includes about 5000 members of hill tribes, which make up 33 distinct communities in Lam Dong province. Traditional dress can occasionally be spotted in the market places. Hill-tribe women of this area carry their infants on their backs in a long piece of cloth worn over one shoulder and tied in the front. The City of Eternal Spring, Dalat's temperature hovers between a pleasant 15°C (average daily minimum) to 24°C (average daily maximum). Effectively Dalat has two seasons - dry (December to March) and wet (April to No-vember). Despite the mild temperatures, by the end of the dry season the lush green surrounds turn to brown. Even in the wet season, mornings normally remain dry - allowing time for sightseeing before the deluge begins.

HANG NGA CRAZY HOUSE

A perfect combination of Dalat's bohemian tradition and its taste for kitsch. Hang Nga Crazy House (Map p309; ĐT: 822 070; fax 831480; 3 ĐHuynh Thuc Khang; admission 8000d) is a guesthouse in the form of a giant surreal artwork. The architecture is Gaudi-meets-Alice in Wonderland and cannot easily be described: there are caves, giant spider webs made of wire, concrete tree trunks and scary-looking animals with glowing red eyes. Yes it's tacky, and exceedingly commercialised, but many are astounded to find such a countercultural construction in Vietnam. The owner of Hang Nga Crazy House, Mrs Dang Viet Nga, gained a PhD in ar-chitecture in Moscow, where she lived for 14 years. Hang Nga, as she's known locally, has designed a number of other buildings that dot the landscape around Dalat, including the Children's Cultural Palace and the Catholic church in Lien Khuong. The Dalat People’s Committee has not al-ways appreciated such innovative designs. An earlier Dalat architectural masterpiece, the 'House with 100 Roofs', was torn down as a fire hazard because the People's Commit-tee thought it looked antisocialist. However, there is little chance that Hang Nga will have such trouble with the authorities. Her father Truong Chinh, was Ho Chi Minh's succes-sor, serving as Vietnam's second president from 1981 until his death in 1988. There's a fascinating display on his history and achievements in the main hall. Probably the strangest thing about this construction is that people can actually stay here (rooms range from US$19 to US$84), although the constant -stream of tourists and the glowing red eyes of the giant kangaroo would surely take some getting used to.

BAO DAI'S SUMMER PALACE

This Art Deco-influenced vilfa (Dinh3;offt Đ Trieu Viet Vuong; admission 5000d; 7-1 lam & 1.30-4pm) was constructed in 1933 and was one of three palaces Bao Dai kept in Dalat. The decor has not changed in decades, except for the addition of Ho Chi Minh's portrait over the fireplace, but the palace is filled with artefacts from decades and governments past and is extremely interesting. In Bao Dai's office, the life-sized white bust above the bookcase is of the man himself;the smaller gold and brown busts are of his father. Emperor Khai Dinh. Note the heavy brass royal seal (on the right) and military seal (on the left). The photographs over the fireplace are of Bao Dai, his eldest son Bao Long (in uniform), and his wife. Empress Nam Phuong. Upstairs are the living quarters. The room of Bao Long, who now lives in France, is decorated in yellow, the royal colour. The huge semicircular couch was used by the em-peror and empress for family meetings, during which their three daughters were seated in the yellow chairs and their two sons in the pink chairs. Check out the ancient tan Rouathermique infrared sauna machine near the top of the stairs. Bao Dai's Summer Palace is set in a pine grove, 2km southwest of the city centre. Shoes must be removed at the door. There's an extra charge for cameras and videos.

DALAT FLOWER GARDENS

An unusual sight in Vietnam, these gardens (Vuon Hoa Thanh Pho; Tell: 822 151; Đ Tran Nhan Tong; admission 5000d; (7.30am-4pm) were estab - lished in 1966. Flowers here include hydran geas, fuchsias and orchids. Most of the latter are in special shaded buildings to the right of the entrance. All in all it's a very nice and well-kept cross section of Daiat foliage, along with some crazy kitsch topiary. The Dalat Flower Gardens front Xuan Huong Lake, on the road that lead.s from the lake to Dalat University.

If size can be kept to that of the Mekong river pic, should be ok.

This is a currently a free forum so space is limited.

Hope everyone understands.
