Most hotels in Da Lat city, the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong, have been fully booked for the upcoming national holiday at the end of this month.

The long holiday from Liberation Day (April 30) through May 4 has prompted many people to travel. In addition, Da Lat with its cool climate is always a popular destination for residents in the southern region at this time of the year when the weather is the hottest.

The high demand has pushed up room rates, with many one- and two-star hotels even doubling their rates to 400,000-600,000 VND (19-28.5USD) for a double room and 600,000-1,000,000 VND (28.5-47.6USD) a twin room.

Da Lat has 624 accommodation facilities with a total of 10,770 rooms. They included 219 hotels rated from one- to five-star./.
