Tucked deep into the Central Highlands, about 360 km from Saigon, Buon Ma Thuot (pop. 200,000) is much farther off the beaten track than Dalat and sees far fewer tourists. But Buon Ma Thuot is certainly worth the trip. The area is an elephant training center. The region is home to a number of ethnic minorities, including the Rhade and Jarai groups. The area also boasts some impressive waterfalls. Buon Ma Thuot has the distinction of being the site of the last major battle between the North Vietnamese Army and South Vietnamese troops during March 1975. As a testament to that battle, the first North Vietnamese Army tank to enter the city is perched in the center of town as a monument to Buon Ma Thuot's "liberation."
