Autumn in Vietnam starts with the National Day holiday, so people usually spend the early days of the season visiting charming tourist destinations, to enjoy the cool weather after a long hot summer. However, the pandemic has turned traveling into a far-fetched wish this year. Therefore, people turn to photos of Vietnam's famous tourist destination in the early autumn days for a taste of this romantic season.

Sa Pa enters the "golden season" from mid-August to early September, when rice on the terraced fields in Muong Hoa commune, Lao Chai - Ta Van village begins to ripe.

The photo above is named "Dawn in Ta Van", taken by Hoang Trung Hieu, a freelance photographer who is working and living in Sa Pa at the end of August. Hieu said that during the season change, Sa Pa's weather was cold and foggy in the early morning and evening, but the sun still warmly shone at noon.

The town is usually crowded with tourists n Sept. 2, but now, it is left deserted due to the pandemic. Therefore, the pace of life is also slower these days. The picture above shows a ripe golden terraced field in Y Linh Ho village, Muong Hoa valley.

Hanoi is also entering autumn. The sky is higher and bluer, the humid heat of summer has left the city. The picture shows Hang Ngang street at 7:30 am on August 30. Hang Ngang, one of the busiest commercial streets of Hanoi, is now empty because the city has applied social distancing. To celebrate National Day on September 2, houses on the street hung the national flags on their doors. Giang Trinh, a photographer in Hanoi, said that the streets seemed like resting after busting days.

A special feature of Hanoi in this season is the aroma of blackboard flowers. The photo above was taken by Giang Trinh on Quan Thanh Street. Giang said that he often got up early to take a bike ride around the city to enjoy the autumn atmosphere and take photos.

"Hanoi in autumn is pleasantly cool, the sky is clear, sun rays leak through the leaves, very suitable for walking, eating out, and taking photos. Autumn leaves many emotions and memories," he said.

Autumn in Hoi An (Quang Nam) is not as noticeable as in Hanoi. The season comes to Hoi An in mild sunshine, cool weather, and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Hoi An currently applies travel restrictions to prevent the pandemic so the streets are empty, the iconic wooden house in the town is closed.

This photo captures the old town in the afternoon at the end of August. Duy Hau, the photographer, said that the city seemed to be more beautiful but sad in the changing season. This scene is contrasting with the holiday vibe in the years before Covid-19.

When it comes to the most beautiful cities in autumn, visitors often think of Da Lat - "city of flowers." In the early morning, the dew covers the roofs, swept through the pine forest and the calm lakes. When the sun starts to shine, the city is flooded with twinkling golden sun rays.

The road along Xuan Huong lake was covered in mist on the last day of August. Photographer Nguyen Trinh said that the city was applying pandemic restrictions, so the lake is deserted, unlike the usual scene before the pandemic.

Da Lat is stepping into the ripe persimmon season. The photo above was taken at the Mimosa Pass Rose Garden, located about 10 km from the city center. The garden attracts a large number of tourists to take photos with the persimmon trees in this season every year. Dried persimmon is one of Da Lat's specialties that tourists often buy when visiting the city.
