Da Lat Nightlife: Top Things to Do in Da Lat at Night


Discovered as a resort for French officers in the early 1900s, Da Lat is like a mini-sized Europe where people come to find their inner peace. However, that is only a facet of the city as Da Lat at night could be both vibrant and tranquil simultaneously. Read on to see our ultimate list of top things to do in Da Lat at night.

Have a Food Tour around the Hell Market (Da Lat Night Market)

When the sun goes down and the lights go up, it is when numerous Da Lat dwellers and visitors gather at the prominent Hell Market. Despite its distinctive name, the place has no connection with the afterlife world. In fact, this is a street food heaven with famous snacks such as Banh Trang Nuong (Vietnamese pizza), grilled sweet potatoes, skewers, crab soup, etc. In case you’re not fond of these savory dishes, simply choose a soya milk stall, take a seat, and enjoy your drink while watching the flow of people.

Address: Hoa Binh Area, Ward 1
Opening hours: 6 PM - 3 AM the next day


  • Ask or check the price on the menu before ordering. Some vendors might take advantage of you to give an exorbitant price.
  • Keep an eye on your belongings. The market is super crowded.
  • Some groups wearing funny costumes may invite you to take pictures with them and then charge you for it without informing you about the price beforehand. We'd recommend avoiding this service.

Seek Second-hand Items at Da Lat Old Market

For a more local experience, pay a visit to the Da Lat Old Market where you will see locals rummaging a plethora of used items. If you are a vintage fan who is willing to immerse in a crowd, why not try seeking some second-hand outfits? Da Lat is home to quality crochet and knitted items and winter clothing.

Address: The junction of Hoa Binh Area and Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street, Ward 1
Opening hours: 5 PM - 9 PM


  • Ask locals to show you the direction to the market.
  • Check the quality of every item carefully. Use your smartphone’s flashlight if necessary.
  • Always bargain before buying. The final price should be half or third of the original price.
  • Be careful with your belongings. There might be pickpockets in the crowd.

Chill at a Bar/Pub

The chilly air of Da Lat at night may urge you to grab a drink. Unlike Saigon, the city has yet to offer top-notch sky bars and dance clubs, but it provides you with cozy bars/pubs where you can have small talks while sipping a glass of cocktail.

Heyla Cocktail Bar

Going with a group of friends? Heyla is where you should head to! With various games, including dart, billiard, and table soccer, Heyla has what it takes to make your night unforgettable.

Address: 10 Tan Da, Ward 6
Opening hours: 5 PM - 12 AM
