Mai anh dao blossom season comes early on the tea hills of Sa Pa

The photo set named "Spring arrived early on the oolong tea hills" taken by two photographers Bui Xuan Viet (Dong Nai) and Ao Kim Ngoc (Ho Chi Minh City) during a photo hunting journey in the Northern highlands. From the center of Sa Pa, visitors can ride to the 4D highway (the road to Thac Bac or O Quy Ho pass) for about 8 km, then turn left near the notice sign that leads to O Quy Ho, which is about 500 meters away from the oolong hill sites.

This area has been a popular destination for tourists and photographers in recent years. In the midst of early winter, the rows of mai anh dao blossoming create beautiful scenery that looks like a fairyland. The high angle is ideal to catch the panorama view of the pink mai anh dao in harmony with the green tea hills. (Photo: VN Express)

Although the natural scenery here is mesmerizing, these oolong tea hills mainly serve the tea harvest, so the company that manages the hills restricts visitors from entering to take pictures. (Photo: VN Express)

Visitors should visit this place on the last days of November or early December, right when the mai anh dao trees reach its full bloom. (Photo: VN Express)
