Future projects in Da Lat in the Central Highlands of Vietnam

Land disputes at the new Phnom Penh International Airport, future scenarios for Pattaya, and more delays for the Hanoi and HCMC metro systems.

This week is Part 2 in a 3-part series that revolves around Da Lat in the Central Highlands Region of Vietnam. Last week I covered the unlikely proposal of a Da Monorail. This week I continue the Future Cities series with a look at what is planned in Da Lat and Lam Dong Province. Normally I would space out publishing the same destination, but these two posts are integral to tell the story of Part 3.

I was in Da Lat last year, and it has certainly changed since my last visit. While researching this post I see that Bao Loc is becoming the next hotspot in the Central Highlands, so I will make a visit there when I return to Vietnam.
