Mau Son Mountain in Lang Son, Sapa in Lao Cai, Tay Con Linh in Ha Giang province, to name a few, are top destinations for snow lovers in Vietnam.
Vietnam is currently home to 23 UNESCO world heritage pieces and thousands of historical and cultural relic sites.
The north-western region of Vietnam has impressed visitors in early winter by the bright yellow colour of Da Quy flowers (wild sunflower or Tithonia diversifolia).
When visiting the north-western region, visitors should not miss a visit to the majestic landscapes of Pha Din Pass, as it is becoming an ideal destination for domestic and foreign tourists.
The northernmost province of Ha Giang boasts a number of untouched overwhelming landscapes such as Dong Van Karst Plateau Geopark and famous destinations in Quan Ba and Yen Minh districts.
