For the weekend I decided that rather than going to a beach resort I would got to the town of Dalat, which is in the mountainous part off Vietnam. One does not think of Vietnam as mountainous, but much of the country is. We had a 4 hour ride up some rather steep roads with many switchbacks.

Once there we were treated to many interesting sights, including several Buddhist temples.
We also visited a large flower park and saw a beautiful exhibit of orchids.
