Tips on Daklak travel
Avoid travel to Daklak during the rainy season from May to November, as the travel routes in Daklak are mostly dirt roads and can be quite slippery to conquer. December, wild sunflower season, and February to March, Central Highland festivals and the coffee flower period, are the two recommended times to visit this land.
You need to book accommodation in advance, especially in the festival season. All the establishments are available for booking on well-known travel platforms.
Renting a motorbike is highly advisable. But if you travel alone or are incapable of riding a motorbike, then the public bus, taxi or even "xe om" (motorbike taxi) are your options.
Bring along sunblock products and a thin jacket as the sunlight in DakLak has a high UV level, and the difference between day and night weather can be significant.
