Dalat, a holiday resort located 210 kilometres from Ho Chi Minh City, in the highlands region. From the early development of the city in the early twentieth century at the instigation of the Franco-Swiss bacteriologist and explorer alexandre Yersin, to the creation of a health resort in the 20s follow the plans designed by Ernest Hébrard, Dalat, the summer capital, took form and expanded. in 1940 it was considered as a candidate to become the capital of indochina and today enjoys public amenities and leisure facilities reflecting its prestige: the large Yersin high school, the institut Pasteur and Dalat golf course coiled in the heart of the urban scheme, but also many hotels, palaces and hundreds of individual villas. The last 120 years have seen the emergence of remarkable industries in Dalat in the fields of horticulture, floriculture and agricultural research, which over time have become true emblems of the city. The purpose of this study is to help the Province of Lam Dong to make the necessary choices for the development of greater Dalat. The “greater Da Lat” study reframes the existing master plan for the city of Da Lat (393 km2) within a new perimeter now extended to a territory covering 3,355 km2. it reexamines the role, image and development of the resort of Da Lat in this new territory that encompasses several towns belonging to the province of Lam Dong in addition to the city of Da Lat.
This study should help the Lam Dong Province to make the choices necessary for the development of a grand Dalat; these choices are based on a strategic vision and spatial planning guidelines that pursue several objectives:
– allow Dalat to reach the rank of category 1 cities, by meeting demographic, economic, equipment criteria, etc. – meet the expectations of sustainable development of the territory: – by integrating real urban and landscape quality, protected natural spaces, heritage protection zones, – also taking into account economic development geared towards innovation, – and by ensuring the improvement of the living conditions of the current and future inhabitants of the grand Dalat.
