Here are great reasons to join ourTour to Central Highlands:


1. Joining in the festival of lights and the sound of Gong: Gong is a particular cultural tradition of the ethnic groups in the Central Highlands. It is regarded as the spiritual voice and the soul of local people to express their joy or sorrow in their daily life. Gong is often performed on special occasions such as the Gong festival (held annually in five provinces: Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak and Lam Dong); elephant racing at Don Village (held annually in March at Don Village, Buon Ma Thuat); and the Spring Festival from January to March in ethnic villages of the Central highlands. Expecially, the Coffee Festival in Buon Ma Thuot is held in Buon Ma Thuot City of Dak Lak. This is to honour the coffee trees, which bring prosperity and bountifulness to this region. During the festival, you can taste a wide selection of coffee manufactured in the Central Highlands. 

2. Immersing in flower seasons of the Highlands: from early January, the entire Central Highlands changes to the color of rubber forests. After growing and producing the white sap, these economic trees of region now rest and recover from the cutting process. In this season, the trees drop their leaves. Leaves become red and yellow before falling down to the ground. Until March, fields of coffee trees are bright with white flowers. They bloom until the end of spring. After only a few days, the flowers turn to little fruits on branches. This season also attracts the most number of visitors to Buon Ma Thuot.

3. Enjoying a cup of coffee: Coffee from the Central Highlands is the most delicious. When sitting in the sun and wind of this red soil area, a cup of coffee made from the coffee beans grown here is awfully scrumptious.
