If you come across the wide shots of The LOOP on the Internet, you may assume that this spacious and nature-surrounded place is nestled on a hill far away from the city center. 

However, it’s located right inside Da Lat and just a 7-minute drive from the central St. Nicholas Cathedral.

From the St. Nicholas Cathedral on Trần Phú Street, ride for about 50 meters until you see a roundabout. Make a left turn onto Lê Hồng Phong Street, ride for about 1KM, and turn left onto the smoothly rolled Triệu Việt Vương Street. Ride for about 990 meters until you see a right turn onto An Sơn Street.

Make the turn, then ride for about 5 minutes until you spot a white rotunda decked out with glass windows with a sign that reads “The LOOP” on your right.
