The plateau which is now known as Dalat City was discovered by French bacteriologist Alexandre Yersin and was mapped in 1893. In the middle of the 1910s, the urban area of Dalat was formed and gradually became a resort center for French governmental officials and the rich French people in Indochina. In 1930, the French named the green and romantic valley “Vallé d’Amour” (“Thung Lung Tình Yêu” in Vietnamese and “Valley of Love” in English). In the reign of King Bao Dai, the region was called the Valley of Peace. Since 1953, it has recovered the name of Valley of Love until nowadays. In 1972, a dam was built and Da Thien Lake came into being. In 1998, the Da Thien Lake - Valley of Love was recognized as a national landscape.

The Valley of Love has been chosen to host many interesting events such as the Valentine’s Day (February 14), the Kissing Festival in 2008 attracting the participation of 500 couples, or the Dancing Festival in 2009. Since 2011, a special park, the Rose Park, which is a garden of rose flowers of various colors, has been built on a romantic hill. There are iron frames designed into two hearts as a place for couples to make vows as well as append the love padlocks. And the keys are thrown into the lake in the center of the park near the statue of love.
 
In the Valley of Love, tourists can indulge themselves in the nature and let their minds drift away with the pine trees’ songs. For those who want to discover and conquer the height, they can go trekking or hire a car riding to Vong Canh Hill. Crossing through zigzag paths to reach Vong Canh Hill, tourists will contemplate a panoramic view of the Valley of Love full of pine trees, flowers and lawns.

Many couples, even those who have cohabited for almost all their lives, often go hand in hand to the Valley of Love as though this were an exclusive venue for them only. Many love promises have turned out to be beautiful love stories from this love valley.
