In Vietnam’s northern highlands, a mosaic of natural beauties
The Ban Gioc Falls in Cao Bang Province near the border with China is one of the most beautiful sights in Vietnam. It is not even at its best during this time of year, but it still adds to a perfect picture of the harvest season in the province's highlands, which is 340 kilometers to the north of Hanoi.
