Cocoa, chocolate experience and rafting on the river

Buon Ma Thuot might not be as well-known as other places in Vietnam such as Hanoi, but it is worth seeing. It is the provincial capital of Dak Lak (or Dac Lac) province and approximately 360 kilometres from Saigon, deep in the Central Highlands of the country. While Buon Ma Thuot is one of the largest cities in the Central Highlands, only few tourists visit Buon Ma Thuot because it is off the beaten track. However this town could serve as starting point for those who want to see the attractions in the area.
