Central Highlands

The Central Highlands of Vietnam is an area of stunning natural beauty which extends from as far north as Quang Nam, right down to Cat Tien National Park in the south. The most popular central highlands location is Da Lat (we list it separately), but the whole area has immense natural beauty and character. Some of the key locations are Kon Tum, Pleiku, Dak Lak and Buon Ma Thuot.

The Central Highlands provides a fantastic opportunity to get off the beaten track. From breathtaking waterfalls, mist-covered mountains and thick forests, to cultural villages, plantations and farming there is much to explore and very few tourists to share the view with. Eight ethnic minority groups live within the range, amongst them the Bahnar in their longhouses, the Ede and the Lat.
