Rice ripening terrace fields in Binh Lieu

The “Hoi mua vang” (yellow season festival) includes a variety of activities for participants to get immersed in local cultures and explore the beauty of the terraced fields during the ripening rice season such us a running race on October 29g, com moi (new rice) worshiping ceremony on November 4, a pageant for most beautiful girl in traditional costume, a paragliding programme and an ethnic women’s football tournament on November 5.

The yellow season festival has been held annually by the People’s Committee of Binh Lieu district since 2020.

Located in the northeast, more than 100km away from the centre of Hạ Long City and right next to the border with China, the mountainous district of Binh Lieu has a peaceful atmosphere and spectacular landscapes of untouched beauty. 

Although the locality is endowed with a charming beauty all year-round, the district particularly strikes visitors when fall transitions to winter. From the glossy yellow hues of staircase rice fields to the magnificent mountain landscape and natural waterfalls, the area visually amazes at every turn.

More than 90% of locals in the mountainous district are ethnic minorities such as Tay, San Chi and Dao. The area is also home to special cultural festivities such as the Soong Co and San Co folk song singing festivals and Luc Na festival.
