Gia Lai is a province located in the Central Highlands and it’s the second largest province in Vietnam. The Jarai, a native people of Vietnam with the largest population in the province, are credited with the origin of the name. Pleiku is the central city of Gia Lai and its name also comes from the Jarai, meaning northern village or highland village. With the exception of Da Lat, the tourism industry in other provinces in the Central Highlands is not developed. However, the exploration potential is diverse with the abundance of natural landscapes such as majestic mountains and beautiful waterfalls, sea lakes; and even artificial landscapes such as tea farms, coffee farms, rubber tree gardens; and the culture of the local ethnic minorities of the Jarai and Bahnar. With all these destinations to see and cultures to experience, it might be difficult to pick the right places for you.
