3 lazy days in Hàm Tiến – go to bed early and wake up early. Time to start the drive up north. Today I want to reach Hiệp Thạnh which is close to Dalat or Da Lat as the Vietnamese call it.
Along the way I took some pictures of churches for you and some landscape as well. The further I drove into the mountains the less traffic was on the road. A bit more traffic at the QL20 leading towards Da Lat. Lots of crazy bus drivers going as fast as possible but the road is wide and when you see one in the mirror you better stay as far left as possible.
Nhà Thờ Kim Ngọc
They like to have a Holyland Park at the churches here.
Nhà thờ Giáo xứ Hồng Liêm. X-Mas decoration still in place.
Along the 711. More Dragon fruits in the back.
Further up north on the 711 – as you can see – nothing is going on.
The mountains in Bình Thuận – far away from any village they look still good.
You can see how farming is cutting into it
Coffee is eating its way into the forest.
Redecorated! No water nowhere
Church along the QL 28 in the Di Linh District
Church along the QL 28. Poor church – it is not even on Google Maps – so I have no name for you
Comes with a few figures as well.
Nice and full of light
Giáo xứ Di Linh
Not a lot of traffic in Di Linh
Giáo xứ Phú Hiệp
There is always some space to dry your harvest
Nhà thờ Tam Bố
Nhà thờ Liên Khương
New Gold Hotel
The arch to the left and right look similar to the ones of the church which is only a few metres down the road from the hotel. The Booking link to the New Gold Hotel
My room in the New Gold Hotel. It is a Karaoke place but was not to noisy. Big and clean with a big bathroom as well. Not sure why there was no window in the bathroom. Fridge, TV and Air-Con as well – everything 12 US$.
163 km in 4,5 hours including Photo stops as well as a Gas stop
