The economy has strengthened significantly over the years, achieving consistent GDP growth rates of 6.8% in 2015 Q3, improving from the previous rate of 6.4% in Q2. The devaluation of Vietnamese Dong has also made the pathway for investors more enticing, with lowered property purchase prices to create the possibility of higher yields. Furthermore, with the removal of foreign purchase limitations, foreigners are now permitted to own unlimited properties to enjoy lucrative returns of up to 7% in the residential market. Coupled with the growing abundance of apartments with high selling percentages, the renewed interest from foreign and domestic investors makes for a healthy investment atmosphere.
Dàlat is also internationally renowned for its impressive collections of flowers, from the unique Dàlat Rose to the peach blossoms, a sentimental flower that exudes the tenacity of Vietnamese people. The wild sunflowers which grow abundantly throughout the highlands herald the start of the dry seasons.
Within the city limits, the French-style architecture that runs throughout the town areas produces an image highly reminiscent of the French alpine regions. At a sizeable estimated population of 5000 indigenous people made up from 33 vibrant tribe communities, the occasional spotting of the locals clad in colourful traditional dresses while taking a stroll through the marketplace is an amazing sight to behold.
Immerse yourself in the wonderful nature experiences that Dàlat has to offer, and feel your stresses melting away within the vast expanses of lush greenery and tranquillity.
