The iconic rice fields of Asia conjure some of the most beautiful imagery you can hope to experience during a visit. Here in Luang Namtha, it’s quite literally on your doorstep. Pop out on a bike either end of the main street and immerse yourself in a picture postcard of lush greenery as farmers tend their crops. Go at dusk and treat yourself to a scene you will never forget, hazy evening light descends over the mountains as the sun dips in the west, the dragonflies scatter in all directions. Make your way between the fields on the narrow interconnecting paths to one of the little wooden shelters; used by the farmers to shade from the heat in the day, fine for you to use also.
In short, get there from about 5pm, grab a couple of beers, choose your spot and appreciate the beautiful scenery… It will blow your mind!
