Welcome to Southwest Highlands
Protected jungle hosts singing gibbons, pygmy loris, wild elephants and incredible numbers of birds. Active travellers take to the mountains, forests, waterfalls and rivers in biking, hiking, rafting and abseiling adventures, and the former French hill station of Dalat beguiles with its cool climate, the palaces of the last emperor of Vietnam and bars for after-dark thrills.
As varied as the land, the people of the highlands are a great mix of cultures. If you're lucky, you may sleep in a Bahnar rong (tall, thatched-roof building on stilts) or watch the Jarai 'feed' the graves of their dead.
