Catching The Sunrise in The Picturesque Dalat – Have You Tried It?

Dalat has long been famous for its poetic natural sceneries and year-round mild weather, which makes morning running a must-try experience. Let’s explore the running hotspots in this highland city along with the health benefits that comes with it.

Embrace the dawn on Dalat’s flowery roads

There’s something magical about the morning hours – the stillness, fresh air, and a promising new day. Feel the warmth of a misty morning sun on your skin, the highland breeze through your hair, and watch a sleepy town waking up as you jog through Dalat’s steepy road. Begin your running trail with our suggested route below.

Xuan Huong Lake

Amidst the city of flowers is a peaceful oasis of Xuan Huong Lake, oftenly being crowded with people from all walks of life. Though, in the early morning, Xuan Huong Lake is but a sleeping beauty engulfed in a blanket of white mist, yet to be disturbed by the voices of mortals. Then the sun rises, embrace the lake with rays of sunlight, awaken the highland city. Locals fondly speak of Xuan Huong Lake as the heart of the city, and it is an unwritten rule that travelers who come to the dreamy city of Dalat shouldn’t skip on the mesmerizing charm of Xuan Huong Lake in the morning.

Dalat Traditional Market

If a bustling Dalat Market in the evening ever distracted you from exploring the local life of this aged-old traditional market, then we would suggest the perfect time-of-day to do so: bright early morning. Hovering down the streets with your morning running shoes, passing through the idyllic scene of flowers and early-harvested produce being gathered from all places across nearby towns. Rise and shine, the delicacy Dalat Market awaits.

Lam Vien Square

Locate on the opposite side of Xuan Huong Lake, Lam Vien Square brings a touch of modernity to a 130-year city with its impressive glass architecture that resembles wild sunflowers and artichoke buds. Unlike the crowded scene you might witness every night, Lam Vien Square in the early morning is quiet and peaceful, allowing nature lovers to fully appreciate the allure morning breeze of this running route as they cross by.
