Xem anh phong to
A Culture and Tourism Week will be held in Mu Cang Chai district in the northern mountainous province of Yen Bai from September 25-30, highlighting the beauty and value of the local terraced rice fields and H’mong culture.

The festival will run a host of recreational activities all against the backdrop of terraced rice fields, including a exhibition of locally-produced goods, a fashion show of traditional costumes, and a mobile cinema and library. H’mong traditions will be demonstrated during the festival, such as wine and rice-cake making, located along the road from Tu Le commune to the centre of Mu Cang Chai district, as well as at the exhibition venue.

Luong Thi Xuyen, Vice Chairwoman of the District People’s Committee, said preparations were almost completed, promising an eventful five-day festival.

This year’s Culture and Tourism Week marks the 57th anniversary of the founding of Mu Cang Chai district (October 18, 1957) and World Tourism Day (September 27).

Mu Cang Chai is one of the most popular destinations in the northwest – both for domestic and international tourists - thanks to the spectacular beauty of the terraced rice fields, which have been cultivated by the H'mong people for centuries.

The terraces are stunning at any time of year and are visible all over the district, covering an area of more than 2,200ha. The 500ha of terraced rice fields surrounding the villages in Che Cu Nha, La Pan Tan and De Xu Phinh communes were recognised as national heritage sites in 2007 by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
