Trai Mat village
Once staying Dalat, just spent a little time to visit Trai Mat village, a peaceful land not far from Dalat. It's the place where you can enjoy the smell of pine tree, grass and the feeling of freedom in nature.
Leaving the center of Dalat, toward the South East, go along on Tran Hung Dao and Hung Vuong streets heading for the suburb of Dalat, Trai Mat village. It's just about 10 km away from Dalat, there're a lot of options for your transportationsuch as bus, train, motorcycle or bicycle. Going through the pass in the pine forest could be a interesting experience, especially if using motorcycle or bicycle.
Trai Mat could be a different version of Dalat, it look like Dalat a few decades ago, but without the French architectures. Peace is the thing that dominates here, even the market, the most busiest place, you could find some rustic feeling.
Next to the market is the train station, may be the railway from Dalat to Trai Mat is the shortest railway in the world, just about 10 km long. It's used to be the railway connect Dalat and Phan Rang, what was built in the beginning of 20th century by the French.
