Close to the hotel. It was damaged many years ago and needed to be rebuilt. Some of the angles of the timbers struck me as out of balance (compared to wood structures with a similar function in other countries I've visited). But, it is impressive, nonethe

Superb 4 day Central highlands Tour
My two eldest sons and I have just returned from a recent 10 days stay in Vietnam. We decided on the Central Highlands to take us off the beaten tourist track and arranged a four day tour through Central Highlands Eco Tour hosted by our trusty guide Lo Van Manh and his erstwhile driver Hai.It was the beginning of the rainy season so we left the planning of the itinerary to Manh. Setting out from Hoi An by air-conditioned vehicle for Kon Tum through the crowded winding roads of the ever-changing terrain was an experience in itself. Our driver displayed skills that are never called for on Australian roads. He was superb.When arriving in Kon Tum we spent two days experiencing the encounter with the variety of ethnic minorities of the Central Highlands. Although these peoples have moved on from their truly primitive tribal lifestyle the have clung tenaciously to their culture and apparently have been aided in this by the Vietnamese authorities.As a veteran of the Vietnam conflict I was thrilled to see the predominance of Catholic community and well kept churches in the ethnic villages. It seemed obvious our fears of Communist threats to do away with any form of religion for entering the Vietnam conflict were unfounded. That the communities are still surviving and prospering with no fear of war and the peoples are obviously happy, welcoming and gracious to any western contact was indeed a refreshing surprise.From Kon Tum we journeyed on to Buon Ma Thuot and the elephant ride on Lake Lake where we again enjoyed the wonderful hospitality and acceptance by the local peoples.Throughout the whole of our tour with Eco Tours Manh and his driver Hai were solicitous for all our needs and made this a time that will be difficult to forget as the highlight of our 10 day stay in Vietnam.
