First of all, you can book a flight to visit Dalat. It helps you save time but of course, it’s not the cheapest way. You can search some flights of Vietnam Airline, Vietjetair or Jetstar Pacific and the price will depend on when you want to go and which agency you want to book tickets.

It should be noted that Liên Khương Airport (DLI) is quite far away from Dalat. There are 4 ways to go from the airport to the city center of Dalat. Taxi is the most convenient and quickest way to go. However, the rate is quite high, around 250.000 VND to 300.000 VNd for a 4-seat or 7-seat car. You should avoid some fake taxi brands to help yourself out. Some taxi brands you can trust are Mai Linh Taxi (Tel: 063.38.38.38.38), Thắng Lợi Taxi (Tel: 063.3835.835) or Dalat Taxi (Tel: 063.355.66.55). The best way to save money is taking a bus to get the city center from the airport. You can take Airport Shuttle Bus (06:00 AM - 06:00 PM) costing 40.000 VND/ticket. If you travel with a group, you can rent a car from 4 - 45 seats depending on the scale of your groups. Or you can contact your accommodation to ask for picking-up service.

This is the best idea if you travel with a group since you can also use it to travel around when visiting Dalat. Otherwise, there are some bus companies that you can buy tickets to get Dalat. However, it’s not a good idea if you start from the North of Vietnam since you have to take at least 2 buses to get Dalat.
