Da Lat or Dalat is the capital of Lam Dong Province in Vietnam. The city is located 1,500m (4,900 ft) above sea level on the Langbian Plateau in the southern parts of the Central Highlands region.
Da Lat – The name derives from the acronym of the Latin phrase ‘Dat Aliis Laetitiam Aliis Temperiem’ (“It Gives Pleasure to Some, Freshness to Others”), which the French colonial government used in their official emblem of Đà Lạt. In reality, the name Da Lat derived from the language of the local ethnic group Lạt and its original meaning is “Stream of the Lạt”, and the acronym above is in fact a backcronym.
