TAY NGUYEN (VNS) — Tourists visiting the Tay Nguyen (Central Highland) region, the country's largest coffee cultivation area, will see the beauty of ripening coffee orchards as the region is entering the coffee harvest season.
The red colour of ripened coffee beans looks prominent among green leaves. Tourists can see that farmers are now busy harvesting and drying coffee beans. The region has more than 620,000ha of coffee.
Tay Nguyen is well-known for gong culture and ruou can (a kind of wine drunk out of a jar using pipes).
UNESCO recognised the cultural space of the gong in Tay Nguyen as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2005.
The region also has many attractive destinations such as Don village in Dak Lak Province, Yaly waterfall in Kon Tum Province and Dieu Thanh waterfall in Dak Nong Province.
At Don village, tourists can take a ride on an elephant. — VNS
