Central Highlands of Vietnam

Visit the untouched Central Highlands of Vietnam

The Central Highlands of Vietnam are relatively untouched by tourists. A shame, as it is a beautiful region. The area is rich in cascading waterfalls, vast plateaus, and fertile farmland. Perfect for a trip on two wheels with an Easy Rider! Tour with a local guide through this region and learn all about the origins of coffee, rubber, silk, pepper, rice, cashew nuts, tapioca, sesame seeds, sugar cane, peanuts, pineapple, and watermelon.

The Central Highlands are located in South Vietnam, bordering with Laos and Cambodia, and covering five provinces. The area is home to some 4.5 million people, many of whom belong to one of the 53 different ethnic minorities in Vietnam. Different tribes live according to their own traditions and customs, predominantly in the jungle and in the countryside around Pleiku and Kon Tum, along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

Explore the Central Highlands of Vietnam with a local guide

Popular destinations or places of interest in the Central Highlands are cities like Dalat (‘city of eternal spring’) and coffee capital Buon Ma Thuot, which are, respectively, known for the cultivation of flowers and coffee plantations. You’ll also find plenty of water in the Central Highlands: opt for canyoning in Dalat, go fishing on Lak Lake or take a refreshing dip at the waterfalls of Pongour and Draysap.

Exploring the Central Highlands of Vietnam on your own is not recommended. All five provinces have their own regional rules regarding tourist visits and work with some kind of local visa – a ‘permit’. During our Easy Rider tours through the Central Highlands our guides will arrange these permits for you.

Most Vietnamese who belong to an ethnic minority do not speak English, and often no Vietnamese as well. Each tribe has its own language. Because almost all of our Easy Riders (guides) grew up in the Central Highlands, and speak one or more dialects, they can help you get in touch with the locals.

But hey, don’t take our word for it…

“We did a guided 3 days motorbike tour from Da Lat to Di Linh with Mr. Vu’s company and had an absolutely amazing time far away from the mainstream touristic road. We faced beautiful mountain landscapes, learned a lot about locals – life, numerous plantations and fabrics-, swam in and took a shower at a waterfall and enjoyed amazing local food. A million thanks to our guides Hong and Lukat who made this tour unforgettable – they explained us a lot about local traditions, showed us wonderful and hidden places in the countryside and answered every question. Both (and Mr. Vu himself, too) were super friendly, helpful and flexible, what is highly appreciated. Furthermore, we felt secure at every second on the motorbike – they are profis. We had a marvelous time together and a good laugh at all times with you, guys. Mot hai ba zo and don’t forget about the “silent fox” 🙂 Thanks a lot, all the best for you personell and the company. You do a fantastic job!”

“My friend and I took a 3-day tour from Phong Nha to Hoi An. The tour was amazing and we were so glad we booked it as we have seen a lot of interesting sites which we would not have visited otherwise. There was also a nice alternation between the enjoying nice views, swimming and sites related to the Vietnam war. We had Cuong and Hiep as our guides. They are really good drivers and we’re always very careful. They made us feel comfortable on the motorbike which ensured that we could enjoy the scenery while driving. Also of the motorbike, they looked after us, making sure our hotel room was good, that we enjoyed the food and they gave a lot of explanation at each stop. The tour was so good I would immediately book it again.”

“Mr Vu Rocks! 7 days, HCM to Hoi An via HCM trail. Great route thru Vietnamese backroads with Mr Vu sharing his passion and insights into Vietnamese history, culture, and love for his country was exceptional. You couldn’t ask for a better guide and itinerary. Go Mr Vu!”

“Me and my friend had an amazing time with Jack and LuKa. They tried their hardest to make it an unforgetable experience. 2 days before our long trip we did a day tour in Da Lat and wanted to finish our 4 week trip with an multiple day tour so we picked this one. We never felt unsafe on the motorbike and they drove very carefully. You’ll get to see a lot of things you wouldnt see if you werent on a motorbike trip with these experienced drivers. We stopped at multiple local restaurants where no other tourists stopped and visited some locals at their home. If we could do it over again we would choose multiple tours. Thanks for the amazing experience guys!!”

“I did this motor trip with my friend. We had very nice guides named Viet and dung. They showed us nice places and stopped at beautiful views for pictures. They drived save and they had protecting clothes for us. We liked it very much!!”

“We did have a great day with the easyriders today. We travelled from Hue to Elephant spring, had a great lunch ar Langco beach, then travelled to de Hai Van pass, Danang and Marble mountains. We loved the day also my teenagers loved it. We felt very save and secure. We had helmets and vlotjes. I recommend everybody to book with the easyriders. Thank you for one of the greatest day of our life.”

“We road from Da Lat to Ho Chi Minh. We road with Luu, Hoang and Ken and they are so nice and helpful. The whole trip was professional, they are open and they gave us a lot of information about the places we visited! We saw waterfalls, small villages, mountains, tried local food and a lot more! It have been a very exciting tour and it have been a pleasure to be with Luu, Hoang and Ken. We would recommend these guys to all they are the best! Thanks for the amazing tour we hope to see you again!”
