Plum blossoms cloak Bac Ha plateaux

The plateaux of Lao Cai Province are cloaked in a mantle of white plum blossoms, making it a major draw for tourists and visitors wanting to revel in its picturesque beauty.

As Tet draws near, the plateaux of Lao Cai Province’s Bac Ha District are cloaked in a mantle of white plum blossoms, making it a major draw for tourists and visitors wanting to revel in its picturesque beauty.

For the past 30 years, Bac Ha District in north western Vietnam has turned on a spectacular show as its Tam Hoa trees prepare to go into fruit, ultimately yielding a sweet crop unlike its sour cousins.

Many local households have escape poverty by planting the Tam Hoa plum, which yields good profit for their labour, with the added bonus of revenue from foreign and local visitors flocking to see the blossoms.

Bac Ha district has some 1,000ha under cultivation for Tam Hoa plum and leads Lao Cai Province and the rest of the western region in plum production. As the trees go into blossom with the onset of Tet, the district lives up to its name as "the white plateaux".
