What to do in Kon K’Tu

In recent years, the local government has tried to change this village into a community tourism region.

  • You can stay at some homestays, living with the locals to study their culture. You can choose Homestay Mr. A Kam, Kon Ko Tu village.
  • Try using a wooden boat on the Dak Bla River. Wooden boats are unique ones for villagers crossing the river when the bridge did not build. But, pay attention to moving on it when water runs fast.
  • Visit Rong House, which is the communal house located in the center of the village with a tall strange roof.
  • Try the local food, such as Com Lam (rice in bamboo), Grilled chickens, and Pine Wine (Ruou Can).
  • Enjoy the fire burn at night if you have a chance to stay overnight in the village. Of course, this will be organized when booking.
