Lao Cai’s most beautiful season takes place in late September through mid-October. This time of year is when the famous lavender fields are in full bloom!

According to one farmer, there are 29 different lavender varieties grown in the region. Fees to visit and take pictures are US$1.35 (VND30,000) per guest.
