Tay Nguyen beauty in full bloom

With its vast coffee orchards, ruou can (fermented rice wine drunk out of a jar using pipes), and gong culture, the Tay Nguyen (Central Highlands) is an attractive tourism destination, especially at this time when the coffee trees are in full bloom.

Dak Lak Province's Buon Ma Thuot City, known as the coffee capital, is now covered in the white of coffee flowers. Don village and the palace of King Bao Dai – Viet Nam's last monarch – are other popular destinations in Dak Lak. The palace is now a museum of ethnic groups in Dak Lak.

At Don, tourists can take an elephant ride or explore the Serepok River by boat. A 115-year-old stilt house and the tomb of the "King of elephant hunters", Ama Kong, are the village's popular tourism destinations.

The region also attracts tourists to its many beautiful waterfalls, including Yaly in Kon Tum Province, Dieu Thanh in Dak Nong Province, and Krong Kmar in Dak Lak. — VNS
