Mu Cang Chai, Vietnam

PLACE: Mu Cang Chai District, Yen Bai Province
LOCATION: North Vietnam
NOTORIOUS: Rice Terraces
NEAREST AIRPORT: take the train from NoiBai International Airport (NIA)
COORDINATES21° 49′ 58.8″ N, 104° 10′ 1.2″ E
CURRENCY: Vietnamese Dong

I’m a sucker for rice terraces. You may already know that considering this post. What’s interesting about this rural area is that you need to book in advance because the hotels and guest houses are often fully booked! This is popular local tourist destination in Vietnam due to its peaceful landscape and friendly inhabitants, the H’mong.

Apparently the mosquitoes are vicious so come prepared. Also, you need to try the Tu Le sticky rice and you need to swim in the hot Tu Le stream. The best time to visit and see all of the amazing colours is mid-September through to the end of October. If you want to see it when it’s lush and green, head on over from May to July. If you need a good resource for hotels and motorbike tours, this one seems legit. This trip seems like an absolute must for SE Asian backpackers or motor bikers!

  1. A poem for just s nice picture full post

    Natural beauty on each mountain slice,
    Wow! art of unseen nature is so nice,
    Good to see greenery over each terrace,
    Good to see green houses of rice
