Trai Mat

"A quaint railway station with the opportunity for visitors to enjoy a 7km trip to the village of Trai Mat. The train travels through farm land mainly devoted to the growing of flowers.
At Trai Mat there is plenty of time to explore the village with its local businesses and a small market. The village is also home to a group of temples."


The train to Trai Mat

          A nostalgic train - with a renovated old compartment, which will take you to Trai Mat. The length of of the railway from Dalat to Trai Ma is about 7 kilometers. It is the only railway line in the area od Dalat and you can enjoy the panoramic view. In Trai Mat, you can visit the market and the beautiful Linh Phuoc Pagoda, which is one of the highest in Vietnam, with its 38-meter height.
The train departs when three passengers bought a ticket. Departure times are: 07:45, 09:50, 11:55, 14:00 and 16:05 hours. A ride to Trai Mat lasts approximately three quarters of an hour.

Once you have purchased a ticket at the ticket counter at the beautiful station you are surprised. If you study the card, you should see something remarkable! The card states the following in small print:
Passengers are prohibited to carry on board dangerous items such as radioactive [materials] or dead body”.
It's just that you know. Don't take this with you!

This panoramic railway to Trai Mat winds between terraces and little garden of which all available space is covered with fruits, vegetables, herbs or flowers.
The farmers have covered large parts of their crops with plastic. Within a short time you'll travel through a plastic landscape, if you don't make this beautiful journey quickly!

 


The vegetable gardens

The locals used the railroad as a path between the "farms", or as a footpath or cycle path. The stop at the station in Trai Mat gives you time to walk down the main road from the station in the direction of the beautiful Linh Phuoc Pagoda. This magnificent 38-meter, seven-storey bell tower is the tallest in Vietnam and home to a huge bell of 4.3 meters high and weighs 8.5 tons.
In Linh Phuoc Pagoda is also a huge golden Buddha and it has a beautiful painted ceiling of blue skies and clouds. The temple is adorned with mosaic, glass, pottery and porcelain.

"The pagoda and temple is just off the high street in Trai Mat down a dirt tracked road. The temple is to the left and then in front of it there is an open square in front of the temple with a monument of a monk standing under a small two tiered pagoda.
The Pagoda is just over to the right and is very beautiful it is very high and has seven tiers. Each tier of the pagoda is typical eastern designed with the corners of the roof curling up towards the sky there is a small walk way around each level.."
