Went to catch the train to Trai Mat

The building is old. Not really worth a visit in its own right but as we wanted to catch the train we had the opportunity to go into the carriages of the train. They were lovely.

Unfortunately, the interior of the train station is used to house furniture made from tree trunks. Outside behind the station, there are a few old trains, one of which is a coffee shop.

The old architecture and the old trains are worth seeing. It will be about 40,000 dong by taxi from city centre. Unfortunately there weren’t enough people to ride the train (need minimum 20 people) hence missed out on that. The old train engines are really good to see and take photos. Locals usually come here for wedding photography sessions. You... More

The railway station itself is not really an attraction of note, but there are some vintage train carriages that seem to please people looking for photo opportunities. We were lucky to have a train departure that afternoon. We took a return trip on the toy train (~120k dong), which was a 25 min ride (one-way) to a nearby town with... More

It's great to see an old railway station used as a tourist venue. Nice to see some of the carriages turned into a little coffee shop to sit down in. Well worth seeing.

Nice place to take a look at the building and old train. Not spectacular enough for a detour though, but visit when you're close.

Took the train from Dalat to Tai Mat today with my wife and two young daughters aged 10 and 6. The train station is beautiful art deco style and very nice inside. The train tickets were a bit difficult to purchase as there are a limited number of departures a day and there needs to be at least 20 travelers... More

This is a nice French building and worth visiting in Da Lat. Should take a cup of coffee and enjoy the place and for sure taking the train is highly recommended
