The 300-kilometer route by National Road 20
between Saigon and Dalat

Itineraire Saigon - Dalat Sur la route de Dalat Itineraire Saigon - Dalat

It’s possible to leave Saigon toward National Road (R.N.) 20 by way of Albert the 1st Boulevard through Dakao.
The 30 Km. between Saigon and Bien Hoa, where traffic is heavy, are pretty slow-going.
The Binh Loi bridge over the Saigon River, and the two Bien Hoa bridges over the Donaï, which are one-way, slow traffic down considerably.

La plage Donai

After Bien Hoa, between the rubber tree plantations, villages of North Vietnamese refugees have been established. We really can’t recommend driving through these towns because numerous children play along the side of the road.
If you drive at night, slow down when you meet an oncoming vehicle – many tractors transporting logs make the Saigon-Dinh Quan run and back, more often than not without any taillight.
At Dinh Quan there are some strange rounded rocks which erosion has rendered quite unstable.
Then the jungle reclaims its rights over dozens of kilometers.
During the rainy season, the road is flanked by swamps hidden by luxuriant vegetation quite close to that of equatorial regions.
The Blao Pass (10 Km. of winding road) is within earshot of springs coming right out of the side of the mountain.

Restaurant Derrien Blao

The first tea and coffee plantations of the P.M.S. (Southern Mountain Region), start at Blao.
The Boble falls, generally unknown, are accessible by way of a small path where unfortunately leeches are numerous during the rainy season.
Djiring (Di Linh) is the town of Monsegnor Jean Cassaigne, the lepers’ priest.

Restaurant Aux Routiers Djiring

After Djiring, Ban-Me-Thuot is the next most popular hunting area. Here is where the first pine-forests begin with clear streams running in sandy beds. It’s also where the first waterfalls, the Pangour Falls are located, 7 Km. from the R. N. 7, reachable by a vehicle track. The Gougah Falls are about 300 m. from the road.

During the war only the airplane could link Saigon and Dalat in a reliable way, and it was for this reason that two airfields were built in this city:
- the Camly field, accessible to small aircrafts.
- and at Liên-Khang two airlines, "Cosara" and "Air Vietnam" provided regular connections, notably with Saigon.

The village of Dinh Quán, located at Km 113, is known for its unusual rock formations. Also, unfortunately, for the bloody ambush on March 1st, 1948, when Lt. Col. Brunet de Sairigné, Companion of the Liberation and commander of the 13th DBLE was killed.
Today the rocks are barely visible from the road, as they are unfortunately hidden by houses.

Its Latin motto is: "Dat Aliis Laetitiam Aliis Temperiem", (It forms the initials of the town), which means: “She gives joy to some and good times to others”. The site was discovered in 1893 by the famous French medical doctor Alexandre Yersin (French physician and biologist at the Pasteur Institute, of Swiss origin) during one of his first expeditions. Under his initiative a sanatorium was built, with the help of Governor Paul Doumer, thus allowing French officials to recover from the tropical climate and to enjoy the invigorating weather during the summer season.

Dalat the little Paris

View on Dalat Dalat market

Located at an elevation of nearly 1500 m, Dalat was a pretty “French” town of the mid- 20th century.
During the ‘40’s, Dalat became the summer capital of the French in Indochina, and at the time there were 1300 villas; it used to be called "The Little Paris".
"At the end of 1952 Dalat had 25,041 residents including 23,072 Vietnamese and natives belonging to the Lat tribe, 1215 Europeans (not counting military personnel) and 752 Chinese. Nevertheless, the total number is far less than reality. During the year 1953, following the economic development of the city and the simplification of the conditions of access and residence for the South Montagnard Country, the population of Dalat had increased significantly. A significant number of workers and members of the Regiment of the Imperial Guard are added which is an increase of at least 5,000 people."

The St. Nicholas cathedral (also called the Rooster Church by the Vietnamese) is located on the square of the same name and was built between 1931 and 1942 thanks to the will of one man, Father Nicholas, and is the property of the foreign missions. The stained-glass windows, made in Grenoble, France, by Louis Balmet during the ‘40’s, show scenes of the Middle-Ages.
Pink in color, from its height of 47 meters it looks out over the parishioners of Dalat, the resident population as well as the French and Vietnamese families who, during the holiday months, would come to breathe the fresh mountain air.

The old market-place was built in 1937 by the architect Louis-Georges-Anatole Pineau, and is characterized by its clock in the form of a minaret; today it has been remodeled into a cinema, “The 3rd of April”, (the date the North Vietnamese took control of the city).
The Dalat Market was renovated in 1958, and is overflowing with gladiolus, artichokes, avocados, strawberries, cherries, mangoes, which are sold by ethnic minorities.

The Alexandre Yersin High School was founded in 1941
- (Large High School) 13, Albert Sarrault Street
- (Small High School) 1, Jean O’Neil Street
The Dalat High School, founded on July 16th, 1927, took the name “Yersin High School” on May 10th, 1935, in honor of the scholar, student of Pasteur who discovered the bacillus of the plague in 1894 and drew attention to the Langbian.
The establishment is divided into the Large and the Small High School. The Small High School includes all the primary grades and the girls’ boarding-school. The buildings stand on a plateau which on one side overlooks the Big Lake of Dalat, and on the other side overlooks the valley where the train station was built.
As much as possible, since 1945, the scholastic materials destroyed by the Japanese have been reconstituted. The laboratories were organized and the scope of the traditional library has been increased.
The curriculum includes all grades from nursery-school to philosophy and mathematics courses. The living languages taught are English, Spanish, and Vietnamese..

The construction of Emperor Bảo Đại summer palace began in 1933 under the direction of the architect Paul Veysseyre. After World War Two, on 28 April, 1949, H.M. Bảo Đại returned to Dalat. Dalat hosted "Bảo Đại", the "Last Emperor" several summers. (He died in Paris on July 31, 1997).
The residence was also lived in by the South Vietnamese President Ngô Ðình Diem who was assassinated in November of 1963.
Today it is the official residence of the Vietnamese Government.

The Governor-General’s residence in Dalat

A few years later the same architect built the summer home of the Governor-General along a similar design and in the same Art Deco style as that of Bảo Đại.
The architect Paul Veysseyre of the firm of "Brossard & Mopin" was also the architect in Saigon: for the French Navy building on Norodom Boulevard, the Bank of Indochina on Quai de Belgique and also the Indochina Breweries and Ice Company (BGI) on Paul Blanchy Street.
During the Second World War, Dalat was the de facto capital of Indochina for the duration of the Japanese occupation of the peninsula. Admiral Jean Decoux stayed in Dalat several times, and his wife died there on January 6th, 1944.
Today the Governor-General’s residence has become a hotel!

The Dalat Railway Station

Work for the construction of the rail line began in 1901 and it was put into service in 1933 with a length of 84 kilometers, 30 of which were cog-rail, thus linking Dalat to Tourcham in the vicinity of Phan Rang, allowing the connection with the Trans-Indochina Line.
Dalat station, designed by two French architects, Moncet and Revéront, was built in 1938 and resembles that of Deauville. The railway has been out of service for decades, with only a part of the line still in use, was built in 1938 and resembles that of Deauville. The railway has been out of service for decades.
Studies are currently under way to reopen the line in 2016, and a tentative budget of 320 million dollars has been approved by the Vietnamese government.

In 1990, Swiss railfans bought two of the loccomotives back: the VHX 31-302 (at the Song Pha station), and the VHX 31-304 (at the Dalat station), to bring them back to their native land.
They were completely restored and are once again in service in Switzerland on the Furka cog-wheel railway in Oberwald in the canton of Valais (Wallis), at an elevation of 1366 meters (4480 ft.).
