Pleiku – Gia Lai Information
Pleiku is the provincial capital of Gia Lai province, about 50km south of Kon Tum and approximately 200km from Quy Nhon and is linked to Ho Chi Minh City by regular Vietnam Airline flights. There’s a decent local hotel and some reasonable restaurants, but don’t expect an international menu. Away from the town, visitors can see the striking Phu Cuong waterfall, a single torrent plunging vertically into a seething cauldron of water and spray at its base. In complete contrast, Plei Bloum village is a quiet settlement overlooking a broad, slow-moving river. The sunset across the valley from the veranda of an ethnic homestay is a joy!
