national training

. There was an aviation school at Cam Ly Airport. During World War II, Đà Lạt was the capital of the Federation of Indochina (French Indochina), from 1939 to 1945. In the mid-1950s, the Vietnamese Scout Association established their national training grounds at Đà Lạt. The only major involvement Da Lat had during the Vietnam War was within the 1968 Tet Offensive. Fierce battles raged from January 31 to February 9, 1968. Most of the fighting took place between the South Vietnamese MP units stationed in Đà Lạt and the Việt Cộng (Viet Cong) (VC) forces. American MPs were also involved in the fighting and suffered several KIAs during a rocket attack on their compound. Defeats and victories alternated between the two during the sporadic-yet-intense battles. However, the South Vietnamese MPs were eventually able to regain control of Đà Lạt. It is stated that around 200 VC were killed-in-action (KIAs) during this battle. Although South Vietnamese MP forces were known to have significantly fewer KIAs, their injured list grew steadily throughout the engagement because of periods of low supplies and support. What ultimately saved the South Vietnamese MPs was the fact that they held strong defensive positions throughout Đà Lạt from the beginning to the end of the battles.

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.
