My partner and I walked around this lake today. Unfortunately it was a bit of a gloomy day so the novelty wore a bit thin. I was impressed by the scenery though, the French quarter off in the distance makes for a lovely view. Go when it's sunny though..

Nice, peaceful place. There is nothing extra ordinary- this is just a normal lake. But this completes Da Lat. You can take a stroll along the banks or you can just sit down, relax and watch the twilight during sunset. There will be a bit of hawkering by local vendors trying to sell you selfie sticks or popcorn but you... More

I read so many review about this lake and the most of them are true. Firstly it is lake but in my opinion it was not a normal lake. It is just like a lake in the beautiful painting picture. Without this lake, Da lat city is not romantic as it is now. In the slow life in Da lat... More

There isn't really a whole lot to "do" in Da Lat, so while a stroll around the lake is a nice way to spend 90 minutes, it's slightly underwhelming. You'll walk on roadside or pavement most of the way round, and if you're expecting to be spoilt for choices of places to stop for a coffee or a beer and... More

People are attracted to water and this lake is no exception mainly due to its proximity to central Dalat. The colour of the water varies due to rainfall and run off and in all the times I have been in the area never seen a fisherman land a catch. Have seen a lot of large dead fish floating in lake....

It's amazing to walk or run around the lake in early morning. Having coffee at purple house is also a good choice

The main lake in the city centre, large but polluted. Saw some locals fishing along the lake with one using fishing net. Did not take any photo as water is in mud colour.

I spent a few hours walking around the lake and exploring the sites along the way. Very peaceful, and an easy walk the entire way around. Lots of nice gardens along the path, men fishing, and attractions you can stop at.

This tranquil lake lies at the heart of Dalat town, allowing a long stroll all along its shores. The Big C supermarket is a major feature, it appears to be built into the hillside like a nuclear bunker, with a French Riviera style outdoor performance space on the roof. All long the route you can watch the amazing brides and... More

Lake is large and peaceful, very good to walk and relax. There are some coffee shops around the lake or on the lake, whatever you choose, all are good, since they have good view
