The Valley of Love is a picturesque valley of rolling hills with a lake as its centrepiece, serving as a romantic getaway for locals and tourists. The French originally named the area Vallée D’amour (The Valley of Love) in 1930, due to its tranquil setting and greenery. The name was changed to The Valley of Peace under the reign of King Bao Dai, and in 1953 was changed once again to its current name, The Valley of Love or Thung Lung Tinh Yeu.
Highlights of Valley of Love
The overall theme of the valley, which doubles as an attraction park of sorts, is romance and peace. Upon entering The Valley of Love, you see a large golden statue of a pair of hands exchanging rings. There are other statues and expressions of love found throughout the 242-hectare valley. Couples can have their photo taken inside of giant carved-out hearts. The 13-hectare Da Thien Lake - a man-made lake in 1972 - sits peacefully in the middle of the valley. Swan-shaped paddle boats are available for hire.
The scenic green hills surrounding the lake are covered in gorgeous pine forests. Colourful flower beds and gardens line the walking paths that lead around the lake and through the forest up to Vong Canh Hill, from which there’s a beautiful lookout where you can view the valley from above. The track continues to Paradise Hill, which is surrounded by other picturesque lakes.
Located 6 km north of Da Lat’s city centre, The Valley of Love is great for those wanting to escape the city for a couple hours, or for those wanting to celebrate love in a romantic setting, which has resulted in park becoming a popular honeymoon destination. It’s also an ideal area for picnicking and spending time with the family. To get there, visitors can take a bus from Phu Dong Thien Vuong Street. Once there, horse and carriages and train-shaped vehicles are available for hire so that you can explore the park at a relaxed pace.
