Entertainment in De Xu Phinh Village
There is a terrace rice field festival held in Mu Cang Chai yearly. It’s a great way to promote the image of this area to visitors. Like other fields in Yen Bai, the terraced fields in De Xu Phinh commune are most beautiful when the water is pouring or the rice is ripe. Depending on your free time and interests, you can consider exploring this place at one of these two times.
Specifically, the water season in Yen Bai will be around May and June. Meanwhile, the golden season will come to all the fields between September and October. In the pouring season, the weather rains a lot, causing the fields to overflow with water. Looking from above, you will see the poetic, charming rice fields. But when the golden season knocks on the door, the terraced fields of De Xu Phinh commune proudly put on a brilliant yellow shirt that makes everyone fall in love with this beauty.
One of the best things that you should not miss when coming here is standing from the terraced fields of Ze Xu Phinh commune to admire the beautiful sunrise and sunset. There is nothing more wonderful than seeing the moment of transfer of heaven and earth amidst the majestic beauty of the Northwest mountains.
Usually, people here wake up very early to go to work in the fields. Therefore, besides watching the sunrise in the distance, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the joyful and bustling atmosphere when people start going to the fields.
