Its architecture, consisting of complex, organic, non-rectilinear shapes, has been described as expressionist (Expressionist architecture). Its creator, Vietnamese architect Dang Viet Nga (also known as Hằng Nga), who holds a PhD in architecture from Moscow State University, has acknowledged the inspiration of Catalan (Catalan people) Spanish (Spanish people) architect Antoni Gaudí in the building’s design.

Da Lat

'''Đà Lạt''' ( above sea level on the Langbian Plateau in the southern parts of the Central Highlands (Central Highlands (Vietnam)) region. In Vietnam, Da Lat is a popular tourist destination.

Da Lat's specific sights are pine wood (forming the name: "City of thousands of pine trees") with twisting roads and tree marigold (Vietnamese: ''dã quỳ'') blossom in the winter. The city’s temperate weather stands in contrast to Vietnam's otherwise tropical climate. Mist covering the valleys almost year-round leads to its name "City of Eternal Spring".

Da Lat is also known as an area for scientific research in the fields of biotechnology and nuclear physics.

With its year-round cool weather, Da Lat supplies temperate agriculture products for all over Vietnam, for example: cabbage and cauliflower. Its flower industry produces two typical flowers: hydrangea (Vietnamese: ''cẩm tú cầu'') and golden everlasting (Vietnamese: ''hoa bất tử''). The confectionery industry offers a wide range of ''mứt'', a kind of fruit preserve made from strawberry, mulberry, sweet potato, and rose.
