Title: Photos - Vietnam > Dalat Part 4

Dalat

The first waterfall we visited was the Datanla Falls.  You have to go down a luge – type roller coaster to get to the falls.  It was a great ride and you can go as fast or as slow as you want. 

 

 

 

 

Not quite the same as Niagara Falls

 

They have done a nice job as far as adding small bridges and flowers to make the place attractive.

 

The next waterfall we visited was Prenn Waterfall, very pretty, the way the falls fall over the rock it looks like a curtain of water. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guess what movie I was thinking of when I stood behind the falls???

 

 

To get across the stream they provided a suspension bridge that also was fun, until John walked very quickly across and it moved back and forth, back and forth.

You can rent small dinghies to meander down the stream, they put in a lot of rides and fantasy type things, like huge toadstools to sit under so families can come for the day with their children and have fun!

 

See that grin on John’s face, if you see that grin you know he is going to do something that I always don’t like.

 

 

They have elephant rides, horse and buggy and just like in South Africa Ostrich riding.

 

 

And we’re off, actually it is a very short ride, just enough to give you a taste of what it is like to ride on  an Elephant’s back.

Their eyes are so tiny and quite eerie up close.

 

 

 

 

Ostrich’s have crazy long eyelashes, not sure why they need them that long.  You have to love their faces, with the goofy grin.

 

Here we are under the magic mushroom.

 

Next on our tour is the summer palace of Bao Dai

This building looks like the Art Deco buildings used in the Hercule Poirot movies.  Bao Dai died in 1997, the palace was built in 1933 and it hasn’t changed since then, talk about going back into time.

I lost my photos of the railway station, the crazy house and the embroidery studio.  My computer and I had some technical difficulties and I lost photos of Dalat, plus Hue and Danang, too bad but #*^#happens.
