master plan of the grand dalat

Dalat- Vietnam


Dalat- Vietnam

From the first milestones of the city at the beginning of the 20th century, founded under the impulse of the French-Swiss bacteriologist and explorer Alexandre Yersin, to the creation of a climatic station in the 1920s thanks to the plans of Ernest Hébrard, Dalat, the summer capital, has developed little by little. In 1940, Dalat was considered as the capital of Indochina and was equipped with public and leisure facilities that reflect the prestige of the city today: the large Yersin high school, the Pasteur Institute, the Dalat golf course nestled in the heart of the city, as well as numerous hotels, palaces and several hundred individual villas.
Over the past 120 years, Dalat has seen the emergence of remarkable centres such as horticulture, floriculture and agricultural research, which have become true emblems of the city over the years.

This study should help Lam Dong Province to make the necessary choices for the development of a Greater Dalat; these choices are based on a strategic vision and spatial planning orientations that pursue several objectives:

– to enable Dalat to become a category 1 city, by meeting demographic, economic and equipment criteria….
– to meet the expectations of a sustainable development of the territory:
– by integrating a real urban and landscape quality, protected natural spaces and heritage protection zones,
– by also taking into account an economic development focused on innovation,
– and ensuring the improvement of the living conditions of the present and future inhabitants of Greater Dalat.

A resort city with a unique climate in Vietnam, Dalat has now set itself the double challenge of succeeding in its tourist development, estimated at 10 million visitors, while preserving what characterizes it, i.e. its remarkable landscape, its lakes, its heritage and its horticultural competitiveness cluster.
