Pictures of Vietnam: Springtime in Moc Chau
Photographer Anhtuan85 captures the stunning natural beauty and simple way of life in Vietnam’s northwestern highlands.
As the chill of winter begins to dissipate, springtime announces itself on the sunlit hills of Moc Chau; this is the most beautiful time of year in northwestern Vietnam. The plum trees are in full bloom, their shock of white petals adding a burst of colour to the surrounding hills and valleys. Children with red cheeks welcome the sunny weather.
In local villages, home to the country’s H’mong ethnic minority, men celebrate the arrival of the new season; mothers set off for work, babies strapped to their backs with reams of embroidered fabric; and brightly hued dresses marked with the intricate traditional patterns of the H’mong dry in the front yard. Set against the incredible backdrop of unspoiled mountains and blossoming trees, springtime in Moc Chau is a peaceful affair.
