The road from Hanoi to Moc Chau inspires travelers with its magnificent landscape and hospitable people. Beautiful wild flower- mustard, plum, peach blossoms and sunflowers create a spectacular picture. Countless pictures of Moc Chau have been posted on the internet. Just Google “Moc Chau flowers”, and within 0.29 seconds, you’ll find more than 3.5 million photos. Thanh Cong, a reporter for Dai Doan Ket (Great Unity) newspaper says he often visits Moc Chau at the year-end just to take snap shots of the flowers there. “Moc Chau is beautiful all year round, but at this time of the year, tourists find the beauty of Moc Chau particularly stunning. The landscape is covered with a wide variety of flowers and down in the valleys, there are white mustard flowers and peach blossoms. In the weeks before Tet, there are vast forests of blossoming plum trees, especially around Kia Cave, Paco, and Tan Lap, where the white plum flowers are so numerous that they are like snow blanketing the valleys”, said Cong.

December is month that white mustard flowers bloom. The fields and hillsides around Moc Chau are covered with white mustard flowers, but the most beautiful area is beyond the Ban Ang pine forest. Dozens of hectares of white mustard flowers blend with pink peach flowers and green pine trees to create breathtaking scene. Phuong Thao who works for a travel company in Hanoi says: “I was extremely impressed by the landscape of mustard flowers in Moc Chau. Working for a travel company gives me many opportunities to explore beautiful landscapes and learn about local cultures. I decided to develop tours of Moc Chau flowers to let my clients experience the region, its landscape, culture and people”.

Moc Chau tourists can visit tea farms and learn how to pick tea leaves, dry them and then brew a cup. They can also sample local specialties like fried beef, fish and fresh milk. Thanks to such attractions, Moc Chau is the number one choice of travelers at this time of the year. “A 3-day tour of Moc Chau is the perfect choice. Three days gives visitors enough time to explore nearby destinations like Tan Lap commune, Nong Sap, and the caves of Ban on, Ta Phinh and Ta So”, said Cong.
