Why Dalat Market is special ?

The former market was built with wood in 1929 at the present Hoa Binh square. In 1937, a big fire destroyed the market totally. After that ambassador Lucien Auger planed a new market with bricks. The market could meet the commercial demand for 6,500 people and it was considered as the symbol for the highland city. In the front of the market, we can see the bas-relief of minority boys and girls and the Latin saying where (perhaps) the name of Dalat came from: Dat Alis Laetitiam Alis Temperiem. This means bringing happiness to this person and freshness to the other. In 1958, according to the plan of Mayor Tran Van Phuoc, the market was redesigned. It has two floors. In 1993, on the occasion of Dalat 100 years of foundation and development, Dalat market was upgraded and restored as the present market.

Walking in the night market was a pleasant experience. It was cold in April to me and had to put on a jacket. There were a lot to see and I love those handmade items like purses, bags of all sizes. They are colorful and cute and cost very little from 10,000 VND to 30,000 VND each. There are hot mung bean milk and soy milk so we sat to rest legs. There are foods also. They sell strawberries, avocados and other fruits and vegetables. We went there on weekend and I guess not much to see on weekdays.
