Mu Cang Chai in the ripen rice season

Hotels and other lodging facilities near the special national heritage Mu Cang Chai Terraced Field in the northern province of Yen Bai has been packed with holiday-makers those days as the COVID-19 pandemic has been brought under control.

According to Secretary of Mu Cang Chai district’s Party Committee Nong Viet Yen, a large number of domestic and foreign tourists have flocked to the locality to experience local ripen rice season.

The district built a plan to organise the Mu Cang Chai terraced field festival with a wide range of activities featuring cultural identities of local ethnics, he added.

Particularly, the new highlights of this year’s festival are the Discover Mu Cang Chai marathon with the participation of 100 athletes, a helicopter cruise to experience the landscape from above, a camping festival and the district's four-season outdoor spectacle.

Besides, the paragliding festival “flying over the ripe rice season”, and traditional contests also excited festival goers.

Meanwhile, a tourism promotion campaign named “I love Sa Pa” kicked off in Sa Pa town, Lao Cai province on September 30 with an array of cultural, art and sport activities and promotional progammes to lure more tourists to the locality.

Sa Pa town, bestowed with stunning natural landscapes together with outstanding culture, has been a safe destination since the second wave of COVID-19 outbreak hit Vietnam in July.

The number of tourists to Lao Cai province fell 67 percent year on year to 1.3 million during January-September, making revenue gained from tourism services decrease 70 percent to over 4.7 trillion VND (202.2 million USD).

If the tourism promotion activities show efficiency, the province can greet 2.5 million visitors and gain over 11 trillion VND in 2020.
