    • The reason it’s called “weasel coffee” is because an animal that’s like an opossum, chooses the best coffee beans off of the tree and eats them. The coffee bean goes through their intestines and is stripped of the outer skin and then comes out the backside. The bean is then gathered by a worker, cleaned and roasted. This is the same as the Luwak coffee in Bali but not as good. The coffee in Bali (better known as cat poo coffee) was really good and this coffee was more bitter and less flavorful.

  1. That must been a great experience! The sight of mist and rains are something I love the most, and they make a great photographic opportunity giving a completely different perspective! The busy market and banana bike reminded me of my country (India). The picture of Lou Lou and her mother is simply beautiful! Loved their expression and happy face!

  2. Vietnam is on our list of potential destinations later this year. My 4.5 and 2.5 year old boys would love meeting all of the kids in Da Lat and I would love to fill my suitcase with those beautiful textiles. Love the images in your post!

  3. Well! That was nice. Glad you enjoyed your time here, so you can have at least one happy memory of Viet Nam.

  4. Wow having the first impression and the scam, it must have been a relief to be on a friendly place. I dealt with the motorcycle situation in India but rather it was a real policeman, I know how stressful it is, but I guess these experiences later on make great memories 🙂

  5. hey guys, loved this post! I never got the chance to visit Da Lat and I would love to return to Vietnam to do so. I love when you get the chance to connect with local people, that’s where my best travel memories come from. I would love to try weasel coffee! I never saw it anywhere in Vietnam, I guess I need to plan another trip now!

  6. This is just the kind of piece I needed to read since I’ll be making my way through Asia to Vietnam very soon. A friend will be meeting me in Ho Chi Minh, and reading this article makes me all the more excited to visit–especially, the countryside. Sounds entirely different than the big city, and the contrast is beautifully presented.

    I’m a sucker for good pictures too 🙂 thank you..
