“At night, it’s cold 5-6 degrees Celsius, the whole family gathers in the tent to turn on the heater. In the morning, I wake up to watch the sunrise in the middle of the plum blossom garden blooming as white as snow overhead. What makes me happiest is that my children were very happy. enjoy the beautiful experiences here,” shared Mr. Hiep, a tourist from Hanoi to camp in Moc Chau.

Mr. Bui Van Hiep (Wild Horse), one of the popular photographers in Moc Chau, said that this year plum blossoms bloomed on the occasion of spring travel after Tet, so many tourists flocked to see the flowers, causing Moc Chau to burn the photographer.

“Visitors often have to book a few days in advance for the photographer to arrange the work. At the weekend, I can earn 4-4.5 million dong a day from taking and editing photos for tourists,” Hiep said.

The road to the plum orchards has many slippery sections due to fog and high humidity. Visitors should choose a visit time between 9am and 4pm, do not go too early because the morning dew has not dissipated and go too late, there will be no sun to take beautiful pictures. Visitors should bring warm clothes, socks, towels to keep the body warm because the daytime temperature in Moc Chau fluctuates between 12-17 degrees Celsius.
