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.
To resume tourism activities in the post-pandemic period, Yen Bai’s Luc Yen district has built ‘safe and friendly destinations’ and fully reopened to tourists.
Remote but beautiful, Tram Tau in Yen Bai province features a rough mountainous terrain and is home to a large number of Viet Nam’s ethnic minorities. Despite being off the beaten path, the locality is growing its sustainable ecotourism base.
Located at an altitude of nearly 1,400 metres above sea level, Suoi Giang has a cool climate year-round. Average temperatures are perhaps 8-10 degrees Celsius lower than in places such as Van Chan district and Nghia Lo town. On any given day in Suoi Giang, visitors may enjoy a cool night, floating clouds in the morning when they awake, and clear skies and breezes in the afternoon as golden sunshine bathes the hillsides. We are pleased to introduce readers to some of the highlights of Suoi Giang.
Early last week, the People’s Committee of Yen Bai held a conference to promote the province as a safe, friendly, unique, appealing and impressive destination, with the participation of more than 70 local tourism operators and those of other localities.
