is like an elegantly hand-decorated treasure box: beautiful enough to just look at from the outside, but lift the lid and you’ll find so much more. Dak Lak is a beautiful province of Vietnam that bestows a rural experience far from the loud and bustling streets of Ho Chi Minh City
. These paths less travelled have much more depth than travellers could ever expect! Book one of our Dak Lak hotels today and don’t look back.
Dak Lak Province is the place to explore the Central Highlands of Vietnam, a region of great natural beauty, featuring waterfalls, lakes, elephant rides and rolling hills. It’s also easy to make your way from Dak Lak to the provincial capital, Buon Ma Thuot
, where you can get your city fix and soak up the vibes, which are vastly different to the nation’s larger metropolises. Decide for yourself whether or not their coffee is the nation’s best!
You’ll love Lak Lake in the Central Highlands, for its wide expanses of calm water circled by rolling green hills, as well as the water cascading from one flat shelf to another at Dray Sap waterfalls. You can also get a glimpse into the lives of the area’s ethnic groups that live off the rich lands and waters, whose traditions and customs are distinct from others in northern Vietnam.
There are a few great ways to take in the beautiful and verdant scenery of the Central Highlands at most of Dak Lak’s popular attractions, and one is on the back of an elephant. Rides are offered by locals and not hard to organise. The best time to see these majestic animals in action is during the Central Highland Elephant Racing festival in Don Village during March or April. Motorbikes and bicycles, available for rent in the cities, offer another way to make your way between the towns and sights with more freedom to do as you please.
Dak Lak is growing in popularity by the year, so the sooner you go, the more untouched and amazing it’ll be! Book from our selection of Dak Lak accommodation and flights to Ho Chi Minh City
