Vietnam’s Terraced Fields

Terraced rice fields

Northern Vietnam’s mountains are home to some of the most colourful hill tribes – like the Hmong, Tai and Dao – in Southeast Asia. Various tribal villages dot the countryside, each with its own architectural style and living arrangements. Rice is a staple here, and in this mountainous region, the only way to grow them is by making terraced fields. These fields drape every inch of the mountains, a testament to the people’s ingenuity and hardiness. Just before the harvest season, these fields enhance the beauty of the countryside when they turn electric green.
