Mu Cang Chai is home to spectacular rice terrace fields. They were a favourite tourist destination in Vietnam, before the pandemic struck.

These terraces lie up to 1,000 metres above sea level. They mostly belong to the Hmongs, a minority group who make up most of the area's population. They created these rice fields in the mountains as a means to survive.
