– Central Highlands localities have welcomed nearly 1.9 million visitors since
early this year, a rise of 9 percent year on year, with tourism revenue of over
2.9 trillion VND (127.57 million USD), up 14 percent.

Lam Dong was the most
popular destination for tourists in the region, attracting 78.34 percent of
total visitors to the whole region, according to the Steering Committee for Tay
Nguyen (Central Highlands) Region.

Lam Dong has designed
diverse tourism products such as mountain and lake exploration, adventurous
tourism, and agricultural tourism.

Dak Lak province came
second in the number of tourists, thanks to unique attractions such as elephant
riding, rowing a dugout canoe in Lak River, Don Village, and gong performance
by ethnic minority artists.

Along with promoting
its strength in diverse terrain and rich culture heritage of ethnic minority
groups, the Central Highlands region is also investing in building tourist sites
and expanding transportation system serving tourism.

Currently, the Lien
Khuong international airport in Lam Dong has been operational with a capacity of
more than 2 million passengers per year. It is serving 27 flights each day.

The region is also actively
promoting its tourism sector through coordination with media and travel agencies
at home and abroad.

However, the Steering
Committee for Central Highland Region assessed that tourism revenue still modest.
The committee suggested that regional localities develop new and unique tourism
products in agriculture, forestry and culture, while fostering regional
connectivity to attract more visitors.-VNA
