Our winners today 🍍

🥇 The city on hill - DaLat, Viet Nam, short trip by @winnietran

" Apparently, Da Lat has magic when anyone comes here they become entangled, unable to leave. Located on the Lam Vien plateau, Da Lat has no sea but exudes beauty, with lush pine forests, majestic landscapes, stunning flower gardens, and many landmarks worth mentioning. In addition, even though this is a mountain, there is an airport here, making it easier to move."

🥈 Kalk Bay South Africa: Eating Authentic Slap Chips and Walking in the Beautiful Streets by @fermentedphil

" The city is built on the opposite of the railway station, as you can see in the image below. It is interesting to hear the train every so often passing because as any South African knows, public transport is not something common. Or, someone from a city where there is no trains close by, you get shaken every time the train goes by!"

🥉 Hatcher Pass, Alaska by @azircon

" The last 2 miles or so is dirt road but nicely graded and any regular car can easily do it. The road follows the Little Sushitna River (where I have fished recently) to its headwaters towards the Mint Glacier. The area is spectacular as you can see above and below. It is now a popular hiking/camping/backpacking destination with several trails going towards the headwaters of many smaller tributaties of Little Su (as it is fondly called over there."
