Honking is normal in Vietnam, to my regret. So many bikes, so few cars and buses. Like in Saigon many years back.

 

Cool or cold weather in Dalat? I wonna be there in February, what climate to expect?

For me, after decades in central Thailand, Dalat would be too cold :It's also too touristy. 

Moved from Thailand to Vietnam 2 years ago. Been living in the Delta area, where I found the people very welcoming and very honest :hardly any rip-offs like in the more touristy area. Pick a medium sized town with not too many tourist :There are still department-stores, supermarkets and plenty of restaurants without the insane traffic and less of the senseless nerve-racking honking you get in bigger cities.

Hi, I was just there. The weather was nice and cold compared to Thailand. What struck me was the overwhelming amount of motorbikes, and the constant honking. Personally I don’t think the city have enough to offer to stay there more than a few days.

Totally agree. I love Da Lat and visit at least a couple of times a year but never for more than a few days. Its way too small to stay long term.

For me the diabolical food in Da Lat is another reason not to stay long. I love Thai style VN food because it’s adapted for a Thai (and my) palate so it’s full of flavour and spicy.

Da Lat climate is year round cool which means swimming pools are rare. Walking is great for this reason.

The Mekong Delta area.

Dalat has a very nice climate; however, the novelty wore off after a few days. One expensive-looking golf course, and a gathering point for bird-watchers. No visible night life.

Not like the hard partying life in Chaing Mai. You Brits cant be without a pub, neh?

I lived in Vietnam for 4 years. You'll soon come to despise everyone you see. And if you ride a motorbike, you'll love traffic coming at you every which way but up and down.
