As a morning or afternoon excursion, head out with your car, driver and guide to visit several Gai Rai villages which surround Kon Tum.

The Gia Rai hill tribe group believes in the existence of genies and hold rituals connected to this faith. The group is a matriarchal society, in which the women are free to choose who they marry. The husband lives with the wife’s family and inheritance is passed on to the daughters. Each village has a communal house called a ‘rong‘, a central stilt house with a tall, steeply pitched thatched roof. No nails are used in the bamboo construction.
