Central Highland is a large mountainous region located on the West side of Central Vietnam. This area contains five different cities and provinces. Among the five provinces, Dalat is the most south-after destination where most of the best Vietnam tours are designed. And even it is said that Dalat is featured as a focal point. However, this usually leads to the negative fact that the other provinces are frequently overshadowed and most of the Outlander visitors have no clue what the others four are. Take a further and deeper look into the itinerary below to see what else you can be offered if intending to search for the finest Central Vietnam tours in six days.
