2. Visit Truc Lam Zen Monastery

Once you reach Truc Lam station, don’t forget to visit the monastery and immerse yourself in the tranquility of its surrounding environment.

It’s a great place to stop, stay away from the hustle and bustle of life.


3. Relax at Tuyen Lam lake

We had a short trek from Truc Lam monastery to Tuyen Lam lake, one of the best landmarks in Da Lat city. 

Tuyen Lam Lake is more than 350ha wide, located in the middle of a vast green pine forest. The small oases create a charming poetic picture, and we were in awe when we first came here. 

If you love outdoor activities, we recommend trying kayaking or simply renting a boat and explore the scenery.

We enjoyed our time at The Seen House, a cafe with a serene view of the lake. The atmosphere is relaxing, and the coffee was tasty. 


4. Try Vegetable hotpot

Returning to Robin hill after a relaxing time at Tuyen Lam lake, we stopped by Leguda Restaurant, a hotpot buffet offering a diversity of vegetables. 

The hotpot soup was delicious, and we could enjoy the fresh and tasty delicacy of Da Lat.
