Many call it "Le Petit Paris" and the city even has a mini-replica of the Eiffel tower in its center!

The main sources of income in the area come from agriculture and the tourism industry, but the city is also very proud of being an educational center that produces professionals every year including doctors and architects (Dalat University has more than 13,000 students). So there is a good chance that visitors will meet young, enthusiastic and friendly Vietnamese from every corner of the country.
