3. The Dalat Railway Station, Dalat City
Built in 1938, Da Lat Railway Station was designed in the Art Deco architectural style by French architects Moncet and Reveron, although it incorporates the high, pointed roofs characteristic of the Cao Nguyen communal buildings of ethnic minorities from Vietnam’s Central Highlands. The three roofs, said to represent the three peaks of Dalat’s iconic Lang Biang mountain, are also reminiscent of Normandy’s Trouville-Deauville Station.
Under each roof is a multi-coloured glass window, and under the central roof is a large clock, which has recently been restored. Inside the station, the elevated roofs create a raised ceiling. At the front of the station is a Porte-cochère, or coach gate, supported by two rows of twelve columns each. The station’s unique design earned it recognition as a national historical monument in 2001.
It’s would be a remarkable experience to organize a dinner for your group at this exotic venue.
