$4 Da Lat night train tour offers unique tourist experience

$4 Da Lat night train tour offers unique tourist experience – The Da Lat – Trai Mat railway night services, launched late last week, promise a new experience for passengers to gain a better sense of Da Lat at night.

This tourism product is attracting numerous tourists after three days of free tickets from April 11 to 13.

On the nearly 7 km route, tourists have a chance to enjoy not only the night-time scenery of Da Lat but also novel services such as buffet and live music on the two carriages with both classical and modern design.

This is the remaining part of the 84 km Thap Cham – Da Lat railway route built by French rulers and became operational in 1932 to connect the south-central province of Ninh Thuan with Lam Dong, home to Da Lat.

Before boarding, tourists can explore and take check-in photos at Da Lat Station, a unique architectural structure inspired by Langbiang Mountain and the traditional “Rong” house – a variation of stilt houses unique to the Central Highlands in Vietnam.

Dao Anh Tuan, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Saigon Railway Transport JSC, said that in 2023, the Vietnam Railway Corporation embellished and upgraded Da Lat Station – a national historical relic site, train carriages, and the Da Lat – Trai Mat railway line.

The introduction of live music, free wifi, and wedding service on this route has also added to its attractiveness to visitors, he noted.
