Trains are scheduled to depart Da Lat Station at 6:15 pm and 8:20 pm and leave Trai Mat Station at 7:15 pm and 9:20 pm. Fares range from 72,000 VND to 100,000 VND (2.9 - 4 USD) for each way, according to the VNR.

Dao Anh Tuan, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Saigon Railway Transport JSC, said that in 2023, the Vietnam Railway Corporation (VNR) embellished and upgraded Da Lat Station - a national historical relic site, train carriages, and the Da Lat - Trai Mat railway line.

The introduction of live music, free wifi, and wedding services on this route has also added to its attractiveness to visitors, he noted.

On the nearly 7km route, tourists can enjoy not only the night-time scenery of Da Lat but also novel services, such as a buffet and live music on the two carriages, featuring both classical and modern designs.

This is the remaining part of the 84km Thap Cham - Da Lat railway route, built by French rulers and became operational in 1932 to connect the south-central province of Ninh Thuan with Lam Dong.

Before boarding, tourists can explore and take check-in photos at Da Lat Station, a unique architectural structure inspired by Langbiang Mountain and the traditional “Rong” house - a variation of stilt houses unique to the Central Highlands in Vietnam.

Da Lat, the capital of Lam Dong Province, is surrounded by hills, pine forests, lakes, and waterfalls.

Known as the “City of Eternal Spring” for its distinctive temperate climate, it was developed as a resort town by the French in the early 1900s. Many reminders of the colonial heritage remain, creating a unique feature for the destination.
