Temple Run + Flower Power

We took our second and last flight from Da Nang to Da Lat. Immediately upon exiting the plane we were hit with fresh and crisp air. Finally no humidity. It was great.

In Da Lat we visited a bunch of temples and gardens. The most extravagant temple we visited was called Linh Phuoc Pagoda. It was built with thousands and thousands pieces of broken china and glass. A giant mosaic. Pretty amazing to see in person.

Finally because Da Lat was a very pretty town full of flowers and nature – the King lived here and has a couple houses and summer homes here. We went to two of them. Strong french influences in the architecture and style. Apparently Da Lat is known as “The Little Paris” of Vietnam. To me, Da Lat seemed very San Francisco-y. With all the ups and downs. Also because of it being in the mountains – the surroundings makes it a very great town for agriculture. Lots of fruit and vegetable farms, coffee and tea plantations surround Da Lat.
