Upon arriving in Da Lat, you immediately fall in love with the place. Nestled in the mountains, it has a cooler temperatures, unique coffee shops, lots of outdoor recreation activities, and fertile land for growing an assortment of foods such as strawberries, avocadoes, and coffee.
Grace, Alexus and I ventured towards the “Crazy House”, but soon found ourselves in a splendid café named “Maybe Blue Coffee”. The drinks were a little on the sweet side for me, but I loved the atmosphere.
The Hang Nga Crazy House is an actual guesthouse that opened its doors in 1990 and still continues to be in progress. It’s like walking into a surrealism art-piece to the level Gaudí’s architecture or Dalhi’s art.. It is comprised of several buildings connected by narrow bridges and spiral staircases. Some small sections are still under construction. I greatly enjoyed it and would definitely go back. Additionally, I recommend going the hour before it closes, to avoid the crowds.
In the evening, the three of us checked out Maze Bar (Also known as “100 Roofs Café” and “The Escape Bar”). It feels like you are almost back in the Hang Nga Crazy House. The architecture is so wild that you are inevitably going to get lost inside due to the numerous levels, crawlspaces, and dark corners.
