Da Lat Railway Station is not only a unique architectural work of Da Lat city, but also a place marking a special mark in the history of Vietnam's railway industry. Da Lat station was built from 1932 to 1938, located in the railway Thap Cham - Da Lat, connecting the plateau city with Phan Rang (Ninh Thuan). This railway line is 84km long, with a height difference of 1,500m, was started in 1908 by order of Governor General of Indochina Paul Doumer. In 1932, the completed route was also the time to build Da Lat station. The whole line has 12 stations, 5 underground tunnels, is a special railway line because there are 16km of steep cog railway, with an average slope of 12%. At that time, railways and locomotives with cog wheels were only available in Switzerland and Vietnam. In 1972, this railway line was destroyed by war. In 1975, the country was unified, this route was restored but only operated for a short time due to poor economic efficiency. Currently, Da Lat station has been separated from the national railway system of Vietnam, but is still an attractive tourist destination.
