Dalat is a beautiful city in the Central Highlands of Vietnam, known for its cool climate, colonial architecture, and natural attractions. Dalat is also a great base for exploring the nearby destinations in the Central Highlands, such as Buon Ma Thuot, Kon Tum, Pleiku, and Lak Lake. The Central Highlands of Vietnam is home to several indigenous tribes. The four major tribes of the central region are the Bahnar, Jarai, Ede (also called Rhade), and Koho. These tribes speak dialects that descend from Malayo-Polynesian and Mon-Kmer. The Central Highlands of Vietnam is a distinct contrast from the tropical south, with an arid climate, rolling hills, and blue skies. It is a plateau bordering the lower part of Laos and north Eastern Cambodia. Kon Tum Province shares a border with Laos and Cambodia, but Gia Lai Province and Đak Lak Province only share borders with Cambodia. Like four other regional provinces, Lam Dong Province is landlocked but has no international border.
