Waterfall visit and elephant ride in Central Highlands

Given hot weather in HCMC, it would be perfect to travel to Buon Ma Thuot in the Central Highlands which has cool weather in the summer.

In Buon Don, tourists will have the opportunity to meet local elephant keepers, visit the tomb of Khun Ju Nop – the King of elephant hunters, listen to stories about Ama Kong, the best elephant hunter in the Central Highlands, and drop by a 120-year-old house on stilts. They can also take an elephant ride to cross the Serepok River.

Buon Ma Thuot is the capital city of Dak Lak Province. It is home to the cultural space of gongs, which was recognized by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

During their trip to the city, tourists can visit Dak Lak Museum to learn about the cultures and lives of ethnic minority groups in the Central Highlands, visit Khai Doan Pagoda, see the breathtaking Dray Nur Waterfall and explore the Ede people’s houses on stilts, which are more than half a century old.

In Buon Ma Thuot, which is known as the country’s key coffee growing area, visitors can taste different kinds of coffee. The tour will take in Trung Nguyen Coffee Village and the Coffee Museum to learn about the coffee making process and enjoy filtered coffee.

A memorable summer in the “Kingdom of wonders”

Saigontourist has launched a super promotional tour to Cambodia, with the price starting from VND3.979 million, and several other budget travel programs to the neighboring country’s popular attractions including a four-day tour to Bokor Bokor-Sihanoukville-Phnom Penh or Sihanoukville-Koh Rong Samloem Island-Phnom Penh priced at VND4.179 million, with departures set for Thursday.

Siem Reap in northwestern Cambodia is a popular resort town and a gateway to the Angkor region.

Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites of Southeast Asia. It extends over approximately 400 square kilometers and consists of scores of temples, hydraulic structures and communication routes. For several centuries, Angkor was the center of the Khmer Kingdom.

Temples such as Angkor Wat, the Bayon, Preah Khan and Ta Prohm, exemplars of Khmer architecture, are closely linked to their geographical context as well as being imbued with symbolic significance.

The capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, is located at the confluence of three rivers - the Mekong, the Bassac and Tonle Sap.

Taking part in the Saigontourist-arranged tour to Phnom Penh, visitors can explore the Royal Palace and the spectacular Silver Pagoda which has 5,000 silver tiles covering its entire floor.
