Compared with the true love which has to surpass several obstacles, the Valley of Love in Dalat had to surpass many challenges in the past in order to gain its rightful name as today. In the beginning, the valley was called Vallée D’amour (Valley of Love) by the French before being renamed The Valley of Piece. In 1935, its beauty and captivation persuaded people to once again name it after the most wonderful thing in the world: Love.
The Valley of Love today is located 4 miles away from the center of Dalat which is considered as the little Paris. Throughout history, it has been one of the most picturesque and romantic sites of Dalat city, with many deep valleys and endless pine forests. The tranquil Da Thien Lake, which was created in 1972, also adds a great deal to the attractiveness of the valley. To truly appreciate the sceneries is not hard because travelers can easily follow the natural tracks and staircases all around the valley to visit and admire the gorgeous flower gates and statues.
The tracks lead to Vong Canh Hill from which the magnificent view in the Valley of Love gradually appears in each tourist’s eyes. From that hill, they can also see the Langbian peaks standing out vividly against the blue sky, or continue their adventure to find the Paradise Hill, another ideal destination which is surrounded by beautiful lakes. Overall, the valley is another wonderful addition to your trip to the romantic Dalat.
Does it sound like a great rendezvous to say your marriage proposal? Not really, because anyone can possibly fall in love with the landscape before fully listening to what you say. But in case you are really making a proposal, give it a shot. Even if she/he refuses you, at least you will have been to The Valley of Love.
If tourists in Vietnam travel want to make a tour to Dalat, a rhythmic land of flowers and romance, you should add the Valley of Love to your itinerary because it is a wonderful destination for those who love a romantic trip.
