The shots above were all taken on the Daily Tour #1 in Dalat, Central Highlands. We saw a little of everything in this diverse town. I really enjoyed the (German-built) cable car ride, and then on to several pagodas, a thundering waterfall, a former king's mountain retreat, lunch at Little Dalat Restaurant (seafood soup and beef goulash), to see the silk embroidery demo, and to taste many of the area's dried fruits.

Just had dinner for the third time at Long Hoa up this street (fried spring rolls and BBQ shrimp, unshelled with heads still attached - messy but tasty) and a large Tiger beer on ice - 150,000VND. Naturally, I also had to stop at the wonderful bakery across the street for a few custard and coconut treats.

Please excuse the quality/selection of the photos, as picking decent ones from the thumbnails is near impossible with this cataracts!.

On to Saigon on the late plane tomorrow, and a few hours later, it's home for me.
