At present, there are many vehicles to reach to the Northwest Vietnam such as traveling by motorbike, coach or booking tours from travel companies so that you can easily choose a suitable vehicle according to your financial affordability and interests. Compared to other tourist destinations, travel point of time is very important and decisive to the success of your “gold discovery” trip. In the Northwest Vietnam, only one paddy crop is cultivated each year and planted differently in respect of time so that paddy ripeness is not equal. Paddy in Sa Pa, Quan Ba is ripened at the earliest, next is paddy in Mu Cang Chai, Hoang Su Phi…According to local people, the most wonderful point of time is from mid-September to the end of October when harvest time is started. On this occasion, dry weather condition will make it easy and comfortable for traveling especially when you desire to “adventure”.


There are road sections that you can not hardly be surprised with glamorous landscapes although you have traveled on them for many times. Mu Cang Chai (Yen Bai) is such a wonderful place. Terraced fields in La Pan Tan, Che Cu Nha and De Xu Phinh which have been listed as national landscapes are so poetic that the more traveling the more excited it would be. Mu Cang Chai in the harvest time is even regarded by someone as golden stairs to the heaven and praised by the others as splendid heaven fret.


Each wave of golden paddy waves from the valley to the mountain sides and to the foggy lofty mountain peaks. Colorful range changing from dark green, apricot yellow, bright yellow to brown yellow looks like a sparkling silk band in the autumn sunlight. Contemplating fertile Tu Le valley, breathing fresh air and light aroma of paddy, and conquering the peak of foggy Khau Pha Pass you will feel how tranquil your soul would be.

Formed hundreds of years ago by the community of ethnic minorities such as La Chi, Nung, terraced fields in Hoang Su Phi (Ha Giang) were recognized by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism as the national landscape heritage. In the harvest time, millions of gigantic curves on rocky mountains are bright with glamorous golden color. Golden paddy stretches on stairs and meanders by the mountain sides, that looks as beautiful as a painting.

Voted by the Travel and Leisure Magazine (USA) as one of seven most gigantic terraced fields in Asia and the world, Sa Pa is entering a dreamlike golden paddy crops at every hamlet such as Trung Chai, Sa Pa, Ta Phin, Lao Chai, Ta Van…Nothing is more poetic and romantic than a pure early morning in autumn, traveling on meandering roads to contemplate immense golden paddy crops waving in the wind.

After a 4-day trip with friends to the Northwest Vietnam, Mr. Hoang – an experienced “adventurer” shared on the travel forum: “I like stopping temporally at poetic road sections to contemplate golden paddy fields in the early morning dew. With such road sections, such houses, such photo corner, the delighted feeling in my mind seems to be intact as it was when I set foot in the Northwest Vietnam for the first time”.


Not only as a sparkling silk band in the autumn sunlight with colorful range changing from dark green, apricot yellow, bright yellow to brown yellow, it is also a place of converging colors of life. Naïve smiles of kids, benevolent look of the elderly and harvest happiness on the face of a woman in the mountainous area…are impressive and unforgettable moments. You will find perceive a lofty thing: Nowhere is better than our motherland. As such, whenever we are tired and exhausted in the busy life in cities, we desire to get the feeling of wallowing in such peaceful golden color, enjoying Tu Le steamed glutinous and aromatic rice, kitchen smoked buffalo meat…and continue departing for the Northwest Vietnam to contemplate golden autumn in the following year.
