The Dalat Market represents the heart of Dalat, sitting in the city centre. Local fresh produce such as artichokes, dried fruits, vegetables and lots more are available here throughout the day, and in the evening the roads around the market are closed to traffic and the market spills on to the surrounding streets.
Even if embroidery is not your thing, the artworks at XQ Village will impress. What appear to be detailed paintings are actually hand embroidered works, delicately stitched on site. Laid out like an art gallery, XQ offers the finest examples of Vietnamese embroidery.
XQ branches are present all over Vietnam, from Hanoi, Hue, Hoi An, Danang, Nha Trang to Ho Chi Minh City.
This stunning temple is one of the only that practices Cao Dai syncretism-combining different religious beliefs that would otherwise be considered contradictory. Catholicism, Buddhism and Hinduism are all incorporated, honouring the principle of a singular God. The name Cao Dai translates to 'a high place', which accurately describes the architecture, high ceilings that combine elements of pagodas and churches.
