Chase Waterfalls! It’s worth it!
Da Lat, Vietnam was full of adrenaline and adventure during my short stay in this unique city off the beaten path. It was a cross between Paris, Vietnam and the French Alps with a twist of waterfalls and mountain climbing.
I found this place after seeing a friend’s Facebook page that I met in Cambodia a few weeks prior. I was sold once I saw the waterfalls. My goal was to go find some pretty waterfalls and enjoy nature. It is definitely off of the main tourist route, but still had a good amount of tourism with Vietnamese tourists.
When I arrived, I set out to figure out where to see these waterfalls. I found the tourist information center just before closing time and booked a tour to get off the beaten path for a canyoneering adventure the next day. Da Lat was definitely the most challenging as far as communication, but not impossible. I busted out my Google Translate way more here than anywhere else.
I met so many great people on the way to Da Lat on the plane. A great family adopted me on the plane and took me under their wing. I am so appreciative of kind people in the world.
The great part about Vietnam is that you can hop on a flight at the last minute for pretty cheap. The day I got back from the canyoneering adventure, I checked online for a flight and was on a plane three hours later.
