Tranquil central highlands city

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

My first time in Kon Tum Province in the Central Highlands was to visit a relative. I was left speechless by the small and tranquil city of Kon Tum. There is beauty present in the many vestiges of the French colonial period, as well as in the native villages surrounding it.  Located close to the borders with Loas and Cambodia, Kon Tum City should be high on your tick list. 

Gothic: A wooden church in Nguyễn Huệ Street. The walls are made of a mix of straw and clay. The Gothic-style church is surrounded by green forest under an immense sky. — VNS Photo Thái Há

Culture: The Kon Klor Communal House is a must-see destination in Trần Hưng Đạo Street. The house is made from bamboo, and is richly decorated with the traditional patterns of central highland tribes. — VNS Photo Thái Hà

Local pride: Kon Klor suspension bridge is a pride of locals. The 292m long iron bridge links the two banks of the Đăk Bla River. — VNS Photo Thái Hà

Healthy bites: Local leaf salad is a delicacy you must try. — VNS Photo Thái Hà

River to plate: Fried fish caught from local streams is another tasty dish. — VNS Photo Thái Hà

Nature: The city is surrounded by lots of natural landscapes such as Chư Mom Ray National Park, Ngọc Linh Mountain, Măng Đen Pine Forest and the Pa Sỹ Waterfall. — VNS Photo Thái Hà
