Reviewed 19 July 2017

We had one tour-less day in Dalat that we mostly spent walking around the lake. It took us a few hours because we stopped in the glass flower-shaped cafe, took a look at the underground shopping mall, checked out the music note decorations above the parallel road, spent an hour drinking Dalat wine on the chicken-shaped paddle boats, and bought some Vietnamese burritos on the lake-side.

On the side furthest away from the lake there's a popular dragon garden. We didn't have the energy to explore it, but we took some photos in the dragon-shape bushes by the entrance. There is also a small park right by the lake with perfectly-trimmed bushes that are constantly being pruned by a shear-wielding gardener.

If you're tight on time, I wouldn't recommend walking all the way around like we did, but it's a romantic way to spend an extra day. Walking here doesn't feel like you're in Asia anymore. Because of the French influence in the past, the entire city and especially this area has a strong European vibe to it.

This lake makes the whole piture become special and perfect. It balances all things here. Dalat city is a highland city which are mountain and hill. This lake make everything become relax and romantic.

The lake and around is very scenic and nice for a stroll in the evening. We like it a lot, especially with its excellent weather and temperature all year round (just like Genting Highlands) but this is a whole city! Highly recommended a must visit to Dalat if you ever visit Vietnam.

If you like the cold like my friend and I, rent a pedalo and hop onto it to get a cosy 1-1 HTHT and enjoy the cool weather (it gets colder at night YASSS) with the night sky above you and a little bit of the lights from restaurants alongside the lake. Cheap thrills!

We had a wander round the lake and then decided to rent one of the swan shaped pedalos for an hour or so. Good fun for an afternoon even if they were a little slow!
