The UK-based Telegraph website has recently released a list of 14 world’s most surreal landscapes including the rice terraces in Vietnam.
As said by the website, “The rice paddies in Vietnam form one of the most striking green landscapes in the world. The country is the second largest exporter of rice in the world”.
On the list, the Vietnam’s rice terraces are put on the same level with famous landscapes including the Wave, Azirona – the colorful sandstone rock formation featuring a pattern of beautiful curves and dates back to the Jurassic age, Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia – the world’s largest salt flat formed from several prehistoric lakes, the Caño Cristales river in Colombia famous for its red-colored underwater plants or the Grand Prismatic Spring in Wyoming.
It is splendid beauty of the rice terraces that makes tourists wish to come back after seeing them once. You can find them very popular in mountainous provinces in northern Vietnam such as Lao Cai, Yen Bai and Ha Giang.
You are highly recommended to visit them now when they are covered by yellow color of ripe rice. If you go, please make sure everything including Vietnam visa is well prepared.
