The combination between coffee and gong culture festivals

Gong culture is very famous in the central highlands of Vietnam and is recognized as “Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Cultural Hertigate of Humanity” by UNESSCO. Moreover, coffee is considered as a symbol of the central highlands so the combination of coffee-gong culture festivals is a great idea to introduce the special features to tourists.

The Central Highlands province of Dak Lak will combine its coffee festival with its gong culture festival and introduce the first of this kind in 2017.

According to the provincial People’s Committee, the combined festival, from March 9-13, 2017, will save time and money while promoting local signature culture and Buon Ma Thuot coffee brand.

Dak Lak has the largest coffee-growing area in the country with over 200,000 hectares and a total yield of 450,000 tonnes of beans, accounting for around 40 percent of the whole country’s output. The Dak Lak coffee has been exported to over 80 countries and territories.

The cultural space of gongs, possessed by the locality and the entire Central Highlands, was recognised as an Oral Masterpiece and Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2005.

At the moment, the coffee festival takes place in March while the gong culture festival opens in October.
