Love Valley – An appealing spot for tourists in Dalat

5 Sep

The pine forests and romantic quality of  Da Thien lake make Love Valley (Thung Lũng Tình Yêu) an appealing spot for tourists. Love Valley is large, covering an area of 242 ha. The French used to call it ” Vallée d’Amour ” for its beauty.

Love Valley

The Valley of Love is the Vietnam honeymoon destination. Couples from all over the country travel here. It is the Niagara Falls of Vietnam. There are cowboys wearing guns and riding horses. The relationship between love and fierce western cowboys is unclear, but they are there.

The man-made lake is beautiful. Sailboats and paddle boats ply the waters. People scoff at the swan-shaped paddle boats. Yet, I see a relationship between love and couples in paddle boats. The lake is surrounded by hilly slopes with pine trees. The shore is wide, offering a large area to stretch out and picnic.

Xuan Huong Lake – Beautiful lake of Dalat

1 Sep

Located in the center of Dalat, Xuan Huong lake is considered the heart of town. Xuan Huong is a very beautiful lake. The surface of the lake is as smooth as glass reflecting the shadows of pine-trees which sing in the wind all day and night.

Xuan Huong Lake

In 1919, on Mayor Counhac’s idea, civil engineer Labbé dammed up the stream into a lake. In1923, another barrage was built just below the first one to make up the second lake.

Unfortunately the two barrages were broken when flooded in a storm in March 1923. In 1934-1935, a new big stone barrage, designed by engineer Tran Dang Khoa, was built below the two old ones, making up a larger lake which French people called Grand Lac. This dam is in front of province chief’s palace, at that time, the chief was Mr. Pham Khac Hoe, whom local people called ‘Sir Đạo’ and when the bridge was completed, it was called Sir Đạo’s bridge which still exists nowadays.

The lake is 5000 meters in perimeter, 25 hectares and in the shape of a new moon. The lake’s surface is peaceful and as flat as a mirror, reflecting old and stunted pines willows hanging down. It’s more beautiful as spring comes and peach trees are blooming profusely with a splendid pink, making the lake’s flare brightly as cheeks of youthful Đa Lat girls.

In 1953, the lake was named Xuan Huong so as to make lively the romantic image of the famous Vietnamese poetess in the 19th century, Miss Ho Xuan Huong.
