January – March: is also known as the spring season in Vietnam, with peach, plum, rapeseed, and rapeseed blossoming and laying interwoven with gray stone on the Dong Van Plateau, producing a breathtaking view. Throughout the villages of Quan Ba, Yen Minh, Dong Van, and Meo Vac, the stones are strewn with wild flowers. Spring is also regarded as the traditional festival season, with events such as Tay's mature festival, buffalo combat festival, and Long Tong festival taking place.
April: is the month for the Khau Vai Love Market, one of Vietnam's most distinctive ethnic minority traditions (March 27th of the lunar calendar). Everyone in their senior, middle, or young ages rushed to the love market, dressed in the most delicate traditional clothes, from all over the hills villages or lonely woodlands, not for selling or buying anything, but for a date with their ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend. The Khau Vai love market occurs only once a year.
May - June - July: the terraced water fields season is one of the most appealing seasons of the year due to the wonderfully dynamic scene of the terraced fields. Some farms will receive water earlier in late April or later in early July. However, the key period is from May to June. This is also an excellent time to observe and photograph farmers working in the rice fields, as well as stunning images of the plateau in the sun. Summer in Ha Giang, on the other hand, can be humid and scorching.
August - October: yellow rice season lasts from August to September to October, when the entire plateau is dyed a brilliant yellow. Main crops have been harvested since late September and early October. Harvest season in Ha Giang is the peak travel season of the year for seasoned visitors and professional photographers. The most beautiful place to see and photograph has to be Hoang Su Phi's stunning terraced fields.
October - November: is buckwheat flower season, when it blooms into a lovely scene, enticing individuals who love flowers and photography. Buckwheat is a little, pinky, pinkish-gray flower on rocky uplands, often planted in wide fields spread throughout the slopes, hills, cliff edges... The optimum time to visit is between the third and fourth weeks of October and early November.
December: Rapeseed blossoming season begins in December. The stunning yellow nursery, with hundreds of planted fields, is stunning. At the end of December, certain sites in the Meo Vac district and the Dong Van Plateau have snow, and if you're lucky, you might get to see Vietnam's only snowfall.
