One more noticeable fact is that 1/3 of Dak Lak’s area is Basalt, a precious type of earth allowing the province to develop the coffee, rubber, pepper, etc. industries.
Dak Lak is one of the most potential provinces of Vietnam in term of tourism development, because it has so many historical and natural sites, not to mention its diverse yet deeply-rooted tradition and culture. The first example is Ban Don in Dak Lak, a village which has been put on the world tourism map for its tradition of hunting and taming elephant. Besides, Buon Ma Thuot is considered one of the “Capitals of Coffee” in the world.
The exhilarating culture of Dak Lak is reflected in many forms of arts: the epic of Dam San- Xinh Nha, the language of the Ede and H’Mong ethnic groups, the music instruments such as lithophone, T’rung, K’long Put, etc. Dak Lak is also a part of The Space of Gong Culture in the Central Highlands of Vietnam, which was recognized by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity on November 25, 2005. Architecture is also another factor that Dak Lak people can totally be proud of: there are thousands traditional long stilt houses, inside which every piece of furniture is hand-made from the giant wild trees.
As forty four ethnic groups now reside in Dak Lak, the cuisines there are really diverse with all the dishes of 3 different parts of Vietnam: Northern, Middle, and Southern. Besides the mouth-watering food such as Ban Don Grilled Chiken, Ama Kong Wine is another thing that you should not (and will not) miss if you visit Dak Lak.
