Kon Tum
City and Province

""We came here on the 24th December because we had heard that all the local tribes people would be there for a celebration of the mass. When we got there , there were several thousand people waiting outside waiting - the atmosphere was incredible. We went into the church itself which had been built by the French and which was absolutely beautiful with a wonderfully warm feeling. The wooden structure is quite unique and although we're not in the slightest bit catholic you could sense the feeling of joy from the nuns and children who were dressed as angels for the evening. The church is one of the attractions of Kon Tum and well worth a visit."

Kon Tum City Map

          Kon Tum - is the name of the province and the capital, located in the Central Highlands. The capital is a relaxed town with few attractions. What put the province on the map, are the interesting, surrounding villages, inhabited by minorities. You'll find settlements of the Sedang, Bahnar, Jarai, Gieh Trieng and Rengao. Each village has a Rong, a large and impressive community house, where the villagers gather for special occasions. Oddly, the French Catholic missionary work has been very successful in this remote part of the country, causing part of the minorities are still Christian.

Kon Tum's main attractions are the villages, home to the indigenous hill tribes (called Montagnards, as the French say). It is highly recommended to go with a guide, because you don't speak the language of the minority and can't communicate with them. So you don't accidentally breaks a taboo. If you're on a tight schedule, it is good to book a tour in advance, because these excursions are often fully booked. Although some of the Bahnar villages are in the east and west of the province, the villages which are further away, are more interesting. Highlights are the different types of the Rong, the cemeteries of the Jarai and joining in a rice-wine party with the locals.
