The terraced rice fields of Mu Cang Chai in the northwestern province of Yen Bai are a dazzling sight during the harvest season in October.
Vietnam has been listed in the world's 10 most incredible destinations which are surprisingly cheap to visit by Canadian travel magazine The Travel, along with Laos and Indonesia.
Duc Giang, 29, working in media and event industry in Hanoi, visited Mu Cang Chai to enjoy the view of rice fields in late August. He decided to choose the time ahead of National Day holiday to avoid overcrowding.
During the National Day holidays from September 1-4, Nghia Lo township in Yen Bai province served 11,200 domestic and foreign tourists, earning 8.6 billion VND (365,500 USD) in revenue from accommodation services. Hotels, homestay and accommodation establishments and restaurants have an average service capacity of about 85%.
Over 300km from Hanoi, Tram Tau district of Yen Bai province is home to many majestic mountains and beautiful natural landscapes, which are considered the “paradise" of adventurous tourism lovers.
