Thien Nga said: “As a mountain girl, born and raised in Son La, I have always loved the mountain atmosphere. On this free occasion, my brothers and sisters invited me to visit the Central Highlands, so my group of friends and I decided to go on a trip. Previously, I only knew about Gia Lai – Kon Tum on the map so I was very excited to explore. Coming here, I was covered in dust from the red land and was truly surprised by the people and scenery of this place. Gia Lai city is very beautiful, on both sides of the road are poetic alleys that have not yet been discovered by people, tourist attractions are completely free. The people are honest, enthusiastic, prices are reasonable, even cheap. Tourist destinations are still pristine. The sunset of Gia Lai – Kon Tum is very beautiful, the whole team is fascinated to watch it every day. This is the group’s first trip and it’s more fun and successful than expected.”

However, Thien Nga only regrets that she has not been to K50 and Mang Den waterfalls in Kon Tum. Next time, she plans to spend two days and one night to explore this place.

The trip for the four students was calculated at a very reasonable cost, less than four million VND per person, including all expenses. Below is detailed advice on the Swan Lake trip:
