Le Petit Paris

No you aren’t seeing things.

This isn’t the Eiffel Tower but a telecommunications tower erected in Dalat in 1997.
The top of it was covere
d in mist this night.

In the heyday of French colonialism, Dalat was known as Le Petit Paris.
The town has many old French villas, and is the honeymoon capital of Vietnam.
