May arrives with early summer rains starting to pour down, drawing water from the upper streams into the North-western region. Terraced rice fields take off their boring brown coat of winter to enter a new crop season.
The most beautiful terraced fields in pouring water season in the North-west:
Bat Xat: In the new crop season, Bat Xat is like a natural picture with countless bright colours that stand out among the skies of Ngai Thau, Gia Sang, Y Ty, A Lu and Khu Chu Lin Communes.
Sapa: Always the preferred choice of foreign visitors when visiting the North-west. Visitors can admire the beautiful terraced fields in the countryside of Ta Van, Ta Phin, Hau Thao, Trung Chai, and Lao Chai.
Hoang Su Phi is a mountainous border district in Ha Giang Province. The beauty of the terraced fields in Hoang Su Phi has been recognised by the State as one of the national relic sites in the North-west.
Mu Cang Chai: La Pan Tan and Che Cu Nha are two communes with the most beautiful fields in Mu Cang Chai. No one can go through them without stopping to enjoy the masterpieces of Hmong people in the North-western region.
Tu Le is a valley of terraced rice fields between three high mountains of Khau Pha, Khau Than and Khau Song in the North-west.
