Vietnam has made the shortlist for up to 11 categories in the prestigious World Travel Awards (WTA) 2020.
The Mu Cang Chai terraced rice fields in the northern province of Yen Bai have been praised as one of the world’s top 20 colourful places by the New York-based magazine Conde Nast (CN) Traveler.
