Ako Dhong Village

Worth a look

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

If you're only going to visit one Ede village while you're in Buon Ma Thuot, the Ako Dhong Village offers an easy and worthwhile experience. It's on a street on the outskirts of town, and on either side are series of longhouses on stilts built in the traditional style. The way they're laid out is weirdly reminiscent of a housing tract, but pretty nonetheless. A lot of the longhouse owners moved into traditional Vietnamese-style concrete houses built on the back of their property -- you won't exactly get immersed in Ede culture here, but it's a passable way to kill a few hours.

How to get there: To get here, head north on Phan Chu Trinh St for a bit less than a kilometre from the roundabout. Take a left on Nguyen Dinh Chieu St and the village starts about 800m further down at the bend in the road.
