Tales from Dalat: Mong Mo Hill

On our first trip to Dalat, we didn’t really do a lot of research. We just figured that we just want to go to a cooler climate for Christmas. But this time around, we did a bit of planning.

What’s so great about Dalat is that it has lots of parks around. We discovered that there’s still some parks we didn’t visit the first time, and found ourselves in the Dreaming Hill or Mong Mo.

Best time to visit is during the early morning and late afternoon when the weather is cooler because you’d have to do lots and lots of walking.

If you need a breath of fresh air, Mong Mo Hill is just perfect.

It showcased some interesting structures in Vietnam, like the typical ancient home.

There’s a Love Tree —

It combines a lot of different culture present in Vietnam as well as the fascination with Astrological Animals —

and Christianity.

We also went down the man-made, Golden Waterfalls.

And this pretty structure? It’s a toilet.

The park seems to be well-maintained and well-visited.

It was difficult not to take photos.

And by the time that we visited Mong Mo in the afternoon, all our phones and cameras were running low on juice. 😛

We also went up and down the mini Great Wall. And I tell you, it was no easy feat.

There was also an area where a cultural show was being shown and it was fun!

It is a dreamy park.
