A cultural and tourism festival promoting the beauty of Hoang Su Phi and ethnic minority culture in northern mountainous Ha Giang province is taking place from September 28 to 30.

The highlight is the showcasing of typical products from the district, such as traditional craft, embroidery, weaving, souvenirs, local specialties, and tea, while photos introducing local destinations are also on display.

Ritual ceremonies, festivals, traditional dance and traditional games of ethnic minority groups will take place, with the major participation of the Mong people.

There will be a paragliding competition at Nam Ty commune for those who wish to contemplate charming terraced rice fields from above, while others can also enjoy the yellow terraced rice fields while on terra firma.

The harvest season in Hoang Su Phi falls in September and October, creating an immense sea of yellow fields that attract thousands of tourists to Ha Giang province every autumn. On November 1, 2011, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism recognized 760 ha of Hoang Su Phi’s terraced rice fields, across six communes, as a national heritage.

Ha Giang welcomed more than 1 million visitors in 2017, up 20 per cent against 2016, and earned VND1 trillion ($43 million) in tourism revenue.
