Their collaboration was announced at a tourism-focused conference jointly organized by the Khanh Hoa Tourism Department and the Dak Lak Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism on Friday morning.

During the event, representatives from both provinces discussed plans for cooperation in the tourism sector for the 2023-2025 period.

The two provinces possess several synergistic elements for nature-based tourism collaboration, including their unique cultural identities, diverse festivals, and a wide range of tourism offerings, according to leaders from the respective tourism authorities.

Khanh Hoa is renowned for its magnificent sun-drenched beaches and luxury resorts of international standards, while Dak Lak boasts significant advantages in forest tourism, as well as well-known waterfalls, lakes, breathtaking landscapes, and enchanting ancient forests.
