Location: Xuan Huong Lake is located in the
centre of Dalat City.
Characteristics: Xuan Huong is a very beautiful lake. The surface of the
lake is as smooth as glass reflecting the shadows of pine-trees which sing in
the wind all day and night.
Previously, Xuan Huong was a big lake in Dalat that was 5sq.km in the shape of a
crescent moon. Xuan Huong Lake is a poetic site, attracting leisure visitors; it
is also a popular rendezvous site for lovers. The road round Xuan Huong Lake is
fully surrounded by pine-tree shadows, sometimes running straight, sometimes
curved. Tourists can sit under ancient conifers to fish, play on the lake with
pedal-boats in the shape of swans or rest at Thuy Ta Restaurant, admiring its
exceptional architecture while enjoying a glass of fresh sweet water.
