The next day on the way up north. Off to Đăk Hà a few more kilometres than the last few days. It was hot and dry – OK as long as you are driving. Lots of traffic in Buôn Ma Thuột – no clue where they all go. After a while it was less and less traffic. I look forward to the North of Vietnam. The few days with almost no traffic and a lot of green!

Had to circle and take another one from this angle

On the other side was a little ride
Nhà thờ Vinh Đức
In front of the Nhà thờ Vinh Đức
View down south on the AH17. I remember last year – there was not that much traffic. Al that Tet tourism on the road. Not the best time to be on the road as well.
Giáo xứ Vinh Phước
A lot of these churches have their tower separate.
View south on the QL14
Nhà thờ Buôn Hồ

Yes! Blue sky and no traffic – great!
That is the old church – they build the new one behind it.

The Duy Phuong Hotel in Đăk Hà
A few minutes later I got to my hotel for tonight: The Duy Phuong Hotel in Đăk Hà. On booking they say that they are in Kon Tum but this is a bit further up north. I had a really big room for 10 US$.
View from the balcony at the The Duy Phuong Hotel
Bed with writing table and hang out section
Nice bathroom with hot shower
TV, fridge, closet and door to the balcony”
Window next to the bed
If you look for a place to rest after a long day on the road the Duy Phuong Hotel is the place for you. The town itself is not as busy as Kon Tum. When I was there they has a market on the other side of the hotel. Fresh fruits and vegetables if you like.
The room was very big with a double bed, writing desk with chair, two armchairs, a little desk between them, TV, fan, AC, fridge, cloth rack and a cabinet. Big bathroom and a balcony. The room was very clean – so was the bathroom. The shower hot and the WiFi worked quite good. They have a café downstairs in the morning as well and bike parking under a roof. If you are lazy – they even have an elevator!
I will be back!
