A destination in Kon Tum that many tourists want to conquer is the landmark of the Vietnam – Laos – Cambodia border junction, also known as the Indochina junction.

The Indochina border junction landmark is located in Bo Y commune, Ngoc Hoi district, Kon Tum province, built in 2007 and completed in 2009 on a mountain top 1,086m above sea level. The landmark has a triangular cylinder made of marble, around three sides are the National Emblem and the names of the three countries Vietnam – Laos – Cambodia.

At the Forum “Kon Tum Tourism – potential and prospects”, Dr. Tran Dinh Thien, former Director of the Vietnam Institute of Economics, said: To attract tourists, Kon Tum should focus on building differentiated products. These include the Indochina border junction tourist site, Mang Den tourist area and tourism in Kon Tum city.

Mr. Le Hoang Ngoc Vu, Deputy Head of the Tourism Management Department (Kon Tum Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism) said: The three-border border landmark of Vietnam – Laos – Cambodia is also known as the crossroads by tourists. Dong Duong border attracts many domestic tourists because this is a special check-in location “when a rooster crows, all three countries can hear it”. However, there is still a lack of services for tourism development such as toilets and means to reach landmarks. Currently, only caravans or motorbikes can reach near the landmark.
