TOUR PROGRAM:

DAY 1 - NHA TRANG - DA LAT 

It’s no easy at all for travellers to choose the initial visiting place in Da Lat for its widespread covering beauty. On a whole, Da Lat looks like a cross between Vietnam and the French Alps. As mentioned, most of its hotels and houses were built in French style. The town spreads across a series of pine-covered hills, with a small lake in the center, while surrounded by high peaks, creating a lovely scenery quite different from the rest of Vietnam. Temperatures are pleasantly warm by day, and quite cool at night, down to perhaps 10oC.

Today, Dalat is undoubtedly a beautiful tourist town, it is a favorite destination for company weekend outings, family get-aways, and most of all, honeymoons. Da Lat's high altitude of 1,500-2,000m and fertile landscape make it one among Vietnam's premium agricultural areas, producing a variety of fruits, vegetables and flowers that do not grow in the lowlands.

DAY 2 - LAK LAKE

Lak Lake is beautiful and venturing to the water’s edge at Lak Resort is a great spot to take it all in. It’s free to park and walk down. Mnong villages are located on the southern and western banks but anywhere on the water you’ll find men in wooden boats fishing with baskets and nets, and women and children on the shore knee deep collecting snails, crayfishes, crabs and small fish. 

Traditional music and gong shows is an essential part of Mnong rituals and ceremonies, and gongs are the most valuable instruments, believed to have supernatural power that can communicate messages to the superior God, Yang. In fact, “the area of gong culture in the Central Highlands of Vietnam” was recognised by UNESCO in 2005 as a masterpiece of oral and intangible heritage of humanity. 

There are 30,000 Mnong in Vietnam, primarily located in the Central Highlands. Their language is Austro-Asiatic/Mon-Khmer, the majority are Christian and it’s a matriarchal society — after marriage the man lives with the wife’s family.

DAY 3 - BUON MA THUOT 

Buon Ma Thuot is a small but busy place. With a population of about 300,000, it is home to ethnic minorities like the Ede and Jarai peoples. The place is historically relevant because it was the site of the last major confrontation between the North Vietnamese and South Vietnamese armies back in March 1975. These days, however, Buon Ma Thuot is better known for its coffee.

Of course, things haven’t been smooth with the ethnic minorities, also known as the Montagnards, a term coined by French colonialists meaning “mountain people”. When the Vietnam War erupted, the Montagnards, who really just wanted to be left alone, found themselves caught in between the Communist North and the South. Trapped between a rock and a hard place, they sided with the Americans. Colloquially known as the Yards, they were admired for their fighting skills, bravery and loyalty.

DAY 4 - KON TUM 

For centuries, the Central Highlands of Vietnam was home to the Degar people and many smaller ethnic groups who accepted the Cham rulers as their lords but largely maintained independence. Up until French colonization, this area was largely avoided by the Kinh (ethnic Vietnamese) even though they were steadily expanding their realm southwards. This is because they believed the highlands to be a savage place populated by dangerous animals and hill tribes.

The Central Highlands were the site of conflicts between ethnic minorities and government authorities just a few years ago. Since then, a close eye has been kept on this area. For several years, authorities banned visitors from many towns and only recently reopened them to tourism.

Curious travelers will enjoy Kon Tum and its surroundings. Most people know about Kon Tum because they heard about it in the context of the Vietnam War. During the Easter Offensive of 1973, this was the site of fierce battles between the northern and southern armies and drove hundreds of thousands of people out of their homes. Today you can visit the places where the most famous battles took place and learn about why the locals were so severely persecuted during these final months of the war.

DAY 5 - KHAM DUC 

The Battle of Kham Duc was a major battle of the Vietnam War. The event occurred in Khâm Đức, now district capital of Phước Sơn District, Quang Nam Province, from 10–12 May 1968. 

The Ho Chi Minh Trail was a logistical system that ran from the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam) to the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam) through the kingdoms of Laos and Cambodia. The system provided support, in the form of manpower and materiel, to the National Front for the Liberation of South Vietnam (called the Viet Cong or "VC" by its opponents) and the North Vietnamese Army, during the Vietnam War.

The trail ran mostly in Laos, and was called by the communists the Trường Sơn Strategic Supply Route (Đường Trường Sơn), after the Vietnamese name for the Annamite Range mountains in central Vietnam, and the communists further identified the trail as either West Trường Sơn (Laos) or East Trường Sơn (Vietnam).

DAY 6 - HOI AN 

According to the United States National Security Agency's official history of the war, the HCM Trail system was "one of the great achievements of military engineering of the 20th century". The trail was able to effectively supply troops fighting in the south, a military feat unparalleled given it was the site of the single most intense bombing campaign in history, with bombs dropping on average every seven minutes.

Excavated by hand, intricate interconnecting tunnels with concealed entrances hid trail trekkers, often directly under the feet of American troops searching for them. Radio and telecommunications facilities, food and weapons caches, medical aid stations and barracks, all underground, hid thousands of the North Vietnamese at any given time during the war. The trail system was vastly improved. Even as more people used the trail, the trek was reduced to six weeks for a fit soldier.
