VietNamNet Bridge – The Sa Pa terraced fields in the northern mountainous province of Lao Cai are expected to attract more tourists since a local tour company designed a new itinerary.
The tour will offer visitors the chance to absorb the poetic landscape and learn about the difference between terraced fields among different ethnic groups.
Sa Pa’s terraced fields were named last year among the top seven most magnificent terraced fields in the world by Travel & Leisure magazine.
The Lao Cai authority plans to submit to UNESCO a request to recognise the Sa Pa terraced field together with the Muong Hoa ancient rocks and Hoang Lien National Park as the World’s Cultural Heritage complex.
* Travellers lured by cheap Viet Nam
International travellers have identified Viet Nam as the destination that has a special culture, beautiful landscapes and affordable prices.
The findings are revealed in the latest survey by the Viet Nam National Administration of Tourism and the Asian Pacific for Tourism Association of 7,000 travellers from 13 countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
Viet Nam was particularly attractive to tourists from Thailand, Australia, Japan and Singapore.
