Vietnam, Central Coast and Highlands
Info : Dalat Orientation
Much delight will be taken in an exploration of Dalat's architecture - from the villas of the 'French Quarter' to the unusual guesthouse with each annex shaped like a different animal, known as the 'Crazy House'! Visit Dalat's bustling central market, renowned for its fresh vegetables and fruit that is rarely found in a tropical country; they even grow strawberries here! Visit the former Railway Station (in use only for an optional steam train ride) and Dalat Cathedral. Bao Dai's Summer Palace sits on a hill just outside the main centre of Dalat. Bao Dai was the Last Emperor of Vietnam and the Palace has been preserved exactly as he left it in 1954. It is a classic example of art deco that is a tourist attraction in itself.
We informed Experience Travel Group which countries we wished to visit and our budget and left it up to them to suggest an itinerary and organize. We actually went with all of there suggestions including a cruise up the Mekong which hadn't occurred to us but was stunning. All the travel arrangements went without any hiccups and all the guides met us when and where arranged. As we were doing different things every day (at our request) this was no mean feet. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Experience Travel for people who want a tailor made holiday in the Far East!
