The prestigious New York Times recently named Da Lat- a romantic town with kaleidoscopic patch works of flower in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong as one of the world’s top 52 places to visit in 2016.
Stunning beauty of Da Lat dawn 

Da Lat was described by the New York Times as a former French-colonial hill station with eternal spring weather and an agricultural El Dorado, growing asparagus, strawberries, coffee, artichokes, roses and more.
The US daily newspaper also highlighted vibrant outdoor activities in the city, including golf, white-water rafting, mountain biking, canyoning and splashing under the roaring Elephant Falls or terraced Pongour Falls.
Famous for its mild climate all year round, Da Lat has two distinct seasons - rainy and sunny ones. During rainy season which begins in May and finishes in October, numerous activities are organised to lure tourists, including speed dating in the rain, pelado and tandem races, a raining flashmob, catwalk in Da Lat’s rain and many other games.
Da Lat never has storms, which makes it ideal for hiking or leisurely walks.

Da Lat Weasel Coffee – Civet Coffee’s Real Flavor

Trai Ham Da Lat Weasel Coffee, the big weasel farm in Dalat

The big farm producing the famed weasel coffee in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong has opened its door for visitors to see the entire process of making the coffee with the help of domesticated animals.

Location & Area of weasel coffee farm

The two-hectare farm at 135E Hoang Hoa Tham Street, Da Lat city, is keeping as many as 120 weasels (a type of civet) with the permission of the local forest management agency, and can produce an average of 500 kilograms of weasel coffee every year.

The place for tourists are interested in coffee

Visitors to the farm can see the entire process of making the coffee with the help of the domesticated animals which are under supervision of the local forest management agency.

Meeting the owner of farm

“For every coffee crop, the weasels, a type of civet, are fed with highest quality Arabica coffee berries. The coffee beans which are relatively undigested and intact in their droppings were then collected, cleaned and processed for sale,” the farm’s owner Mr. Nguyen Quoc Minh said.
Experts say the enzymes inside weasels’ stomach give the undigested coffee beans delightful taste and distinctive aroma. Mr. Minh said, the coffee has been checked and recognised by the Pasteur Institute of Da Lat and the Nuclear Research Institute for good quality and hygiene.
The publicizing of weasel coffee production process at the farm contributes to popularising the quality and trademark of Vietnamese coffee, as well as creating a new sight-seeing spot for tourists in Da Lat city.

ABOUT WEASEL COFFEE – CIVET COFFEE

Weasel coffee is the name of a special coffee, the rarest drink in the world. This kind of coffee exists only in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. It is collected from coffee farms, which is the feces discarded by wild weasels after eating mature coffee beans. Thus, it is really rare.
Trai Ham Weasel Coffee is produced under closed process. Clean Moka coffee farm and Weasel farm. Weasels eat mature coffee beans and discard feces, then people collect it and process.

Weasel Coffee
In Indonesia, the word Kopi Luwak is used to refer to this Weasel Coffee. However, the material of Moka coffee from Cau Dat, Trai Ham in Dalat with the height of over 1500m is the best.
In Weasel’s digestive system, with the fermentation of enzymes in stomach, the taste of this coffee is changed and becomes more tasteful mixed with the smell of mold. John Cleese, a Bristish actor stated: “It has the buttery taste of soil, immature taste of mold, solf sweet, also like the taste of syrup, like that it brings the harmony of jungle and chocolate”.

Records of Crazy House in Dalat
Overview of Dalat Crazy House


Otherwise known as the “Crazy House,” this Gaudi-meets-Sesame Street theme park is one not to miss. It’s a wild mass of wood and wire fashioned into the shape of a giant tree house and smoothed over in concrete. It sounds simple, but there’s a vision to this chaos; just ask the eccentric owner/proprietor and chief architect, Ms. Dang Viet Nga. Daughter of aristocracy, Ms. Nga is well heeled after early schooling in China and has a degree in architecture from university in Moscow.

In Dalat she has been inspired to undertake this shrine to the curved line, what she calls an essential mingling of nature and people. The locals deem her eccentric for some reason, but she’s just misunderstood; don’t pass up any opportunity to have a chat with the architect herself.

On a visit here, you’ll follow a helpful guide and are sure to have fun clambering around the concrete ladders, tunnels, and hollowed-out nooks, and in the unique “theme” rooms of this huge fantasy tree trunk. It’s an actual guesthouse, too. There’s a small family shrine in a large common area at the back. It all spoke to me about Vietnam’s refreshingly lax zoning laws, but to many it’s an interesting, evolving piece of pop art. This is a fun visit.

Truc Lam Zen Monastery, The Meditation Center in DalatLocation
Historical records of Truc Lam Zen Monastery
Overview of Truc Lam Zen Monastery
Zen Monastery’s Activities
On the way to Tuyen Lam Lake, tourists have to run right onto a zigzagging road at the mountain side to Phoenix Summit, on which stands beautiful famous Truc Lam Zen Monastery in an open poetic natural environment.

Established in special social conditions, with the aim of restoring Truc Lam Yen Tu Zen School founded by the King Tran Thanh Tong, this Zen school has harmoniously combined different Zen schools with Vietnamese cultural and tradition into Vietnamese Zen. Truc Lam Zen Monastery lies on a protected forest of 23,2 hectares, of which 2 hectares is the building area.
With its advantage of location, Truc Lam zen monastery was designed with a new style of architecture by Mr. Ngo Viet Thu. The sanctum was designed by architecture Huynh Ngoc An. The sanctum has rectangle shape which is toward the South. Sanctum surroundings are a lot of traditional Vietnamese pagodas which were built by ferro-concrete. The monastery was designed modernly. It is simple in its form but modern in structure and use.
The pagoda was built in 1993 – 1994 by superior Buddhist monk Thich Thanh tu and it was designed with the oriental architecture style. With the beautiful landscapes, the pagoda is not only a place for meditation but also an ideal place for visiting.
Besides the Main Hall in the middle, on the right are the consulting room, the belfry and displaying room on the right; on the left are the sitting room, library, and contemplation hall. Before reaching the Main Hall, tourists may take two ways. They may start at the bus stop, take the side gate up 61 steps or, from the lake, climb the 222 steps through the triple gate onto the court in front. Inside the Main Hall, statues are displayed simply but meditatively. In the bright spacious sanctuary is the only statue of Sakyamuni Buddha raising a lotus in his hand – a symbolic image of Buddha in Linh Son Dharma Conference, expressing the philosophy of ‘existence in nihilism’ in Buddhist Zen.
Zen helps people to live in “full awareness” and bring their souls back into peaceful state. Truc Lam Buddhist Zen emphasizes on every one’s interior concentration, either a religious or someone in his/her family. This introspective soul training process leads to personal purification, builds a care-free mind and help one’s good nature to show up; this is the real peace in everyone’s interior, not in a certain paradise in a faraway world.
Visiting Truc Lam Zen Monastery in the quietness of hills and mountains, tourists are free from everyday worries and seem to be able regain themselves in the greatness of the nature.

The legend story of Pongour waterfall

According to the legend, in the old time, Phu Hoi – Tan Hoi – Tan Thanh commune now was managed by a beautiful woman named Kanai (a head of a Kho tribe). She was very good at conquering dangerous animals. Among those, there were four big rhinoceros which always obeyed her commands; to change waste land to cultivate and to fight against enemies. Suddenly, one spring, she was dead on the full- moon day of the first month. That made the four rhinoceros very sad, they didn’t eat any thing just sit by their boss until they died.
Then, one morning, native people here saw that the place where she was born had a splendid waterfall. They told that Kanai hair turned into the water and rhinoceros horns turned into fossil stones to be arranged into order. It symbolized the attachment of human and nature.

History of Linh Phuoc pagoda
Linh Phước Pagoda, also called Về Chai Pagoda, was built from debris of glass, pottery bowls and porcelain between 1949 and 1952 in a remote residential area of Đà Lạt City. The pagoda has been led by many Buddhist monks and was renovated by Monk Thích Tâm Vị in 1990.

Since 1985, Mr. Thich Tam Vi has managed this pagoda and it had a big restoration in 1990.

The main hall of Linh Phuoc Pagoda

Overview of Linh Phuoc pagoda Dalat

The front of the pagoda is lined with meticulous sculptured pillars in the shape of flying dragons which were made from glass debris. A 4.8-meter-tall statue of the Buddha Sakyamuni is a striking work of art which sits between 12 glaze works in relief which respectfully illustrate the legend of the Buddha Sakyamuni.
Visitors can contemplate a 49-meter-long winding glaze dragon which stands near a pond. The scabs of dragon are made from 12,000 empty bottles, the head of dragon is 7m high. Here, at the Long Hoa Vien (Dragon Flower Park), tourists can sense the tranquility and the poetry of the nature and talent of human beings. In front of the sanctum, there is Da Bao tower with 27m height, is a seven-tiered-27-meter-tall-tower made from thousands of pieces of broken bowls. On two sides of the tower, bell and drum are put. In the tower, there are some statues of Quan The Am Bodhisattva. This is really the ideal place for visitors to learn more about Buddhism as each floor of the tower is for the worship of each of the gods and goddesses.

Dragon of Linh Phuoc Pagoda
The second floor of the tower holds the largest bell in Central Vietnam, named Dai Hong Chung. The bell, 4.38 meters in height and 8,500 kilograms in weight, is carved in meticulous detail and includes the four words “Linh Phuoc Tu Chung”, statues of Buddha and sceneries of One Pillar Pagoda, Thien Mu Pagoda, Linh Phuoc Pagoda and Bo De Dao Trang Tower (India).

Almost tourists at the tower of pagoda will do this:

As the bell turns, it presents images of the four seasons. Tourists are advised to turn the bell to the season they are in, write their wishes on a piece of yellow paper, stick the piece of paper onto the bell and then chime the bell three times to send their prayers the Buddha. This is a sacred experience that should not be missed in the flower city.
