If you’ve taken a trip to Lam Dong within the last few years, these scenes seem like a distant dream of a sparingly populated and verdant Da Lat that’s engulfed by nature.
These incredible aerial shots were taken by Bill Robie, a US Air Force veteran, in 1968 and 1971. As the plane slid past downtown Da Lat, Robie was able to capture the central Da Lat Market and other famous landmarks in great details, many of which are slated for demolition according to a new urban development plan published not long ago by city officials.
