It might be an interesting experience for tourists to be a gardener at Trai Mat, an outskirt area which is 8km away from Dalat City.

From the city downtown, people can follow Tran Hung Dao and Hung Vuong streets to get to the site after a 20-minute drive on motorbike. Tourists can also take a bus or train to get there.

Along the way, people can admire beautiful pine trees and French-style villas looming under the shades or they can see local farmers planting vegetables on the hills or students with rosy cheeks wearing woolen coats walking on the street.

After strolling on a small path leading to Linh Phuoc Pagoda, tourists will arrive in a valley where they are lost in a vast area of vegetables like carrot, cabbage, strawberry, onion and amaranth.

They can wander along the farm and talk with local people or pick ripped strawberries and carrot by themselves.

People can buy strawberry as present for family and friends at the price from VND150,000 per kilo at the garden.

Then, tourists are advised to visit a nearby market and Linh Phuoc Pagoda, a seven-level tower which was built from glass pieces and a giant Buddha of Mercy statue made from aster flowers.

Many visitors to Dalat City often pick Tuyen Lam Lake as one of the stops of their tours to the Central Highlands city of Dalat thanks to its evergreen pine forest and picturesque scenery.  
Located some eight kilometers from downtown Dalat, the magnificent lake was created after a dam was built from 1982 to 1987 to let water flow in from Tia Stream in the upstream of Da Tam River.  Surrounded by imposing mountains and hills, the 32-square-kilometer lake is also an ideal place for travelers to take a cruise around, especially in the late afternoon to enjoy fresh air a sunset scene. Along the lake are some bamboo restaurants where diners are served local specialties.

Truc Lam Zen Monastery is also a must-visit destination of the tourist site, where tourists can admire tranquility and peace in mind.
