DUA-VOIThe Central Highlands province of Dak Lak received over 82,000 visitors during the Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday this year, up 55 percent compared with last year, according to the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The figure included 82,000 domestic holidaymakers and 600 foreigners.

Besides famous tourism destinations such as Don Village, Ko Tam, Ako Dhong, Dray Nur waterfall, and Day Sap, the province’s localities also organised several art performances, sports and traditional games for visitors.

Several tour packages were introduced to tourists during the festival including a draw bridge adventure, elephant racing and cultural tours.

Dak Lak is one of the most potential provinces of Viet Nam in terms of tourism development, due to numerous historical and natural sites, as well as the deeply-rooted traditions and culture of its ethnic minority groups.

The province is also a part of “The Space of Gong Culture in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam,” which was recognised by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2005.

It is also famous for thousands of traditional long stilt houses, inside which every piece of furniture is hand-made from giant wild trees.

The province is also named as the “capital of coffee” in Viet Nam as it is now home to more than 200,000ha of coffee.
