It could almost be somewhere along the Himalayas instead. Great shot, nguyentran.

Hi worapong I highly appreciate your comments. In my opinion, Dalat is the City of Highland which has so many landscapes with nice weather almost all year round,the authority of Dalat is going to hold a Flower Festival 2001 from January 1 to 4 and I think there are many many guests coming there on those days so it's very difficult to find accommodation. Warm greetings nguyentran

That would be cool! That all accommodations are booked out is understandable, nguyentran. But believe me, nowhere else is comparable to Thailand. Long weekend during winter has become nightmare here for travellers, who want to retreat from bustling and busy cities. Everywhere is jam-packed with crowd. For example, last new year long weekend, people, mostly from Bangkok, flocked to "Pai" (you don't need to bother the name). It's a beautiful district up north near Myanmar with similar climate as Da Lat. Traffic jam on the mountain for tens of kilometers. The only gas station ran out of oil. People were upset and fought for gas! After the festival, the beautiful district was left with garbage, river dirty. Tourism in Thailand is horribly managed. They only want make quick money but maintenance is poor.

FYI :-)))

Hi worapong The situation that you've described seesed to be terrible at that weekend in "Pai" in Thailand.I don't like to go away, especially go to some places with a lot of people coming there when there are festivals or festive seasons because the sevices are poor, food and accommodation are usually very expensive. Krgs.
