Not much to see

For a European this sight is nothing extraordinary. OK the architecture is fine, but apart from this, it's not a must see...

We went to Dalat train station as part of a day trip. I loved the old building and the train on display. It is really nice to see these old trains and how it was like. Worth a visit.

On se croirait (presque) en France dans les années 30 en voyant cette gare! Vestiges de la colonisation! You can think you are in France during the Thirties while looking at this train station! Some remains of the French colonisation!

You are able to ride the train if you choose. The inside of the station is so European looking with the stained glass windows.

I thought it's nice because obviously it's old and people can actually get in and take photos. The train is small and it's parked on the side of the train station. It's very near from Luihn Phouc Pagoda.

The Dalat train station is the oldest train station in Vietnam. This is a jewel of French colonialist architecture. Everyday at 2 pm, you can go for a ride in an antique train. The ride brings you to a nearby Pagoda. Very plaisant and inexpensive ride. The pagoda is also worth the visit. All passengers go there to visit it.... More

Love to see a historic trace from French colony, the ancients trains make me to imagine a part of history. Not much to see, but the historic value is much appreciate, the entrance is fee, and it located right in the center of Dalat, totally recommended to see!

Nothing spectacular here. The most exciting where the beautiful wooden furniture by Khang Thim on display in the hall way. There's an old train you can pose at and if you are into architecture then the building itself may be of interest.
