Vietnam's Central Highlands

Vietnam tailor-made holidays

Introduction

The Central Highlands region, Tây Nguyên, is often referred to as the backbone of Vietnam. Home to nearly half the ethnic minority groups, it clings to the west side of the centre of the country, its vast plateaus reaching up to 1,500 metres high. If you’re looking to head off the beaten track, this is a good place to start – speak to our travel experts for help with planning.

Vast landscapes

The high altitude and mountainous nature of this region mean that the climate is much cooler than on the coast, making it perfect trekking territory. Hike through stunning valleys, across farmlands and up mountain peaks, stopping overnight in small villages to eat and drink with the locals, or to swim under gushing waterfalls.

Picture-perfect cities

Dalạt, the capital of the Central Highland’s Lam Dong Province, is also known as the City of Eternal Spring, due to its temperate climate. Centred around a glassy lake and pretty golf course, the city was developed as a resort destination by the French, leaving behind glimpses of colonial heritage in its architecture and design. In fact, many people refer to it as ‘Le Petit Paris’, and a mini-replica of the Eiffel Tower adorns the town centre.
