Mix up of Xuan Huong lake and Than Tho (Sighs) lake.

Some photos of Xuan Huong lake (the one right in downtown of Dalat) are mixed up with Than Tho lake (Northeast of Dalat) on your page.

The weather welcomed us with chills, fresh air and clear sky. The landscape is tranquil, surrounded by lakes and pine forest. There are horse carriages waiting for you to book a trip, but we enjoyed strolls as the area's not too spacious to walk around. The entrance fee is $1 per person, really cheap. Recommended

I and my girl friend go to here, but there isn't anything to discover except a strawberries garden. You can view around the garden but you are not picking strawberries although you can pay for it. Don't go here!

There is not a whole lot to do here but walking around the lake is nice and there are a few restaurants and cafes. There are also peddle boats that are not expensive and it's lovely to sit in the middle of the lake for a while.

I think it called Lake of Sighs because you will sigh when you're there. Nothing to see, nothing to do, just sigh...

If you're interested in imagining what it would be like to be on the lake, sighing, a hundred years ago, you don't have to imagine anymore! Just take a walk around this lake when you're looking to kill an hour. The paths are nice, the roadside activity is enjoyable to watch, and you'll encounter characters fishing and loafing about the... More
