Sightseeing in Dalat involves visits to lakes, falls and green valleys which are visited not only by the local people but also by the foreign tourists. The main places of tourist attraction are as follows:

Ho Xuan Huong aka Xuan Huong lake- The lake is open throughout the day and there are no admission fees for entering its premises. But certain amount of rental fees are charged if someone wants to hire a boat. The lake is around 5 km in diameter and was made after two dams on the Camly River were destroyed during a storm.

Lake of Sorrow or Lake of Sighs - This lake is located about 5 km northeast of the town of Ho Xuan Huong. A certain amount of fee is charged for entering the Lake. The lake is so called due to the tragic death of two lovers who committed suicide in this place.

Tuyen Lam Lake - This lake is situated 5 km to the south of highway number 20. The water of the lake is very clear and green and has its origin from the Tia Spring and from the Da Tam River flowing down from the Voi Mountain.
