Ha Giang flower field
Ha Giang is not a strange place for travelers anymore. A lot of national and international tourists have chosen it to be their destinations when traveling to Northern Vietnam. Each season in the province has its own impression. However, spring seems to be the most dreamlike one.
Somebody used to say that Ha Giang was the place where flowers grew from rocks. It sounds exaggerated but completely true. Ha Giang plateau, especially Sung La region, is full of rugged rocks. Thanks to the local, who tries to fill up little hallows among the rocks with dirt every day, flowers have a chance to bloom in spring.
From January to March, it is the time for peach blossoms, white plum flowers, and yellow mustard flowers. Ha Giang from above looks just like a giant multi-colored carpet, embellished by little villages. The beauty of the province lies in not only its flower field but also traditions and customs.

Besides, if you don’t have time to take a look at flowers in the suburbs, chances to contemplate the spring atmosphere are still available.
