Mu Cang Chai, a rural district in Yen Bai Province with iconic rice terraces, will host a paragliding festival from September 20-22.
The annual festival, organized by VietWings Hanoi Paragliding Club since 2013, has become the largest such event in the country.
Its timing makes the festival more popular: it coincides with the rice harvest season in Mu Cang Chai, which is said to be at its most beautiful from late September to early October, when the fields are dyed yellow.

This garden is at its busiest and most beautiful during January and February as farmers prepare flowers and bonsai trees for Tet, the Lunar New Year holiday and Vietnam’s biggest festival, which falls in the first two months of the year.

Bad weather conditions courtesy of Storm Podul have prompted the temporary closure of all famous sightseeing attractions in Quang Binh Province.
Podul, the fourth tropical storm to hit Vietnam this year, weakened into a tropical depression after making landfall around 1 a.m. on Friday in the central provinces of Ha Tinh and Quang Binh with wind speeds of 60-75 kph.
To ensure the safety for visitors, Quang Binh authorities have asked all tourist destinations, including Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park and Tu Lan Cave System, to stop receiving visitors.
