HÀ NỘI — Y Tý in the northern province of Lào Cai was selected as one of the Best-kept Secrets in Asia Travel by the travel site www.thrillist.com.
The website said: “Y Tý sits atop Việt Nam’s highest plateau, offering spectacular views of cloud-reaching mountains and yellow rice patty fields. If you want to experience rural Việt Nam without straying far from the tourist centre of Sa Pa, this is your spot.”
The website says tourists should get to know locals at Y Tý’s market “where surrounding ethnic tribes sell traditional crafts and agricultural goods”.
The list also includes Pindaya, Myanmar; Shikoku, Japan; Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, Mongolia; Busan, South Korea; Jomalig Island, Philippines; Kep, Cambodia; and Vieng Xai, Laos.— VNS
