Dalat, The City for Conferences
May 15th 2012.
It is really interesting when having a chance to travel to Dalat. In fact, what a wonderful journey it is if you plan to travel to the city; but taking part in meetings or conferences in Dalat is also as fantastic as spending your holiday in such a romantic city.
Why don’t we organize our conferences in Dalat? It is a big question for most offices of the Central Highlands as well as 62 provinces in the country. On the other hand, residents here should invite our friends, our relatives or our colleagues to celebrate their big events and many exchange activities in Dalat.
Do you worry about transportation to Dalat? At present, Dalat – Lam Dong has built its road system connecting seven provinces in the region. In addition, Lam Dong is also the province of the Central region that has National Route No.723 connecting to Khanh Hoa including a very dramatic and long slope pass (more dramatic than Ngoan Muc slope pass leading Ninh Thuan to Dalat). Passing the slope, you can easily feel the changing climate as you climb from 500 – 1,000 to 1,500 meters, etc. If you love traveling by plane, you can take a 50 minute flight from HCM or Danang City or 90 minutes from Hanoi to Dalat.
Do you worry about conference space? Currently, there are over 723 accommodations with 11,612 rooms (average VND 40,000/day) of which 185 high-standard hotels from one-to-five star with over 5,000 rooms, including 21 three-to-five-star hotels (with 1,807 rooms). In Lam Dong, Madagui Forest Resort of Da Huoai district seems to be the unique resort of Vietnam. Therefore, the demand of international-standard conferences as well as accommodations in Dalat will be met when you enjoy your time here. For a big summit, Dalat Edensee Resort, located in the Tuyen Lam Forest, is really a good choice with a good view to Tuyen Lam Lake. Currently, Edensee Resort operates four meeting halls whose capacity has reached from 200 to 500 seats. At this time, Edensee and other high-standard resorts are offering a big promotion campaign (reducing 30 percent for all fees), such as SaiGon – Dalat, Sammy, Hoang Anh Dat Xanh, etc. If you prefer less cost, Cong Doan hotel will be your best choice with three meeting halls whose capacity reaches from 250 to 500 seats. Well-equipped rooms, high-standard services such as spa, night club, karaoke, swimming pool, health care, tour, etc. are always professionally available during the guests’ stay.
Do you worry about tourist attractions? Dalat is the place of beautiful landscapes, hence, many all-day tours are available. Currently, the provincial tourist Government also recommends new destinations, such as Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park , Dalat FBio Corp., The Central Highlands Biology Institute, flower villages, high-tech farms, vegetable garden or strawberry farms, etc. You may also have a visit to Dam’bri Waterfall, Madagui Forest Resort in the South or cold water fish farm in the North.
So, why don’t we organize our important conferences in Dalat? Let’s enjoy its wonderful climate with spring all year round, to have the best quality for working time, to get fresh air and fresh dishes for a healthy heart, and have a wish to come back once again!
