Vietnam Rice Terraces

I have been to Vietnam twice. In 2000 for a tour, and in 2006 for a seminar. My previous notes about Vietnam are here,

Below are photos from Dr. Samran Sombatpanit's facebook wall. Doc Samran is a friend, he's the Past President of the World Association for Soil and Water Conservation (WASWAC) and he hosted me and my family in late May 2008 in Thailand.

He went to Vietnam in December  2012. Fantastic rice terraces. In Sapa, northern Vietnam, near the border with China.

Thank you, Doc Samran, for those wonderful photos.
