Located in Vietnam’s temperate central highlands, 5km north of Dalat, the Valley of Love (or Thung Lũng Tình Yêu) is a large flowery park festooned with tacky concrete animals and kitschy love-themed monuments.
But of course some people will love it. The cutesy animal statues, bright and colourful flowers and the (horrible) romantic music blaring out all over the park make this a popular spot with Vietnamese honeymooners.
Love springs eternal in the Valley of Love, where even the rubbish bins come in cute animal shapes. Lovers can catch a horse-drawn carriage, peddle around the man-made lake by swan boat or gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes from beneath a giant heart-shaped fountain.
Or if you’re single perhaps you will find love here. It’s certainly in the air.
Call me a hopeless romantic but I’d rather take my date out for dinner and a movie.
