Since the Da Lat Railway Station is one of the most beautiful stations in Southeast Asia, it is an absolute must visit. Built in 1943, the Da Lat Railway Station offers visitors a glimpse of the city’s colonial history and is known to be one of the country’s finest pieces of architecture. Once called the Crémaillère Railway Station, this unique French monument is now abandoned. This Art Deco train station is known for its cog railway, which is a distinctive feature of the station. Visitors will also come across old locomotives on display, including a Japanese steam train and will even get to enjoy a short train ride. They can ride one of the five scheduled trains that run from Dalat to Trai Mat station. The train ride lasts about 30 minutes, and offers stunning views of the countryside.
