The beauty of Binh Lieu
Binh Lieu is a new name in the tourism map of Quang Ninh. Binh Lieu is located in the northeast of Quang Ninh province. This is a mountainous district with diverse terrains. There are some peaks above 1000 m above sea level.
The hills are covered with soft reed plants. Looking down from above, a white color covers a large area of vision. Whenever there is a gust of wind blowing, all the greens and whites are rustling, swinging with the wind. In the space filled with poetic views, suddenly we have the feeling of peace and calm. The reed hill lures us to childhood memories, when park slides are a dream of luxury, these fields are a playground full of fun for children.
Especially the middle of the reed hill is the stairs leading up to the top. Tourists can follow the steps to get the scenic sightseeing from the top, or capture impressive images with this amazing natural beauty. The most photographed area is located near the 1297 landmark. The meadow is also an extreme camp site for young people or families during the weekend.
Come to Binh Lieu, in addition to admire the white reed hills, visitors also have the opportunity to explore many beautiful sights and culture. Natural sites are vast Binh Lieu rice terraced fields, majestic Ba Lanh mountain, Khe Tien waterfall, Khe Van waterfall, Mooc River waterfall … or plum season of white flowers blooming in Na Lang, Binh Lieu camellia oleifera petals covering the surrounding in white… All in harmony with colorful life of indigenous people makes Binh Lieu attractive and passionate paintings.
Binh Lieu tourism has not really developed. There are not many hostels and restaurants for you to choose, but making up for that, the landscape of this land has a wild beauty, without much intervention of human.
People still compare Binh Lieu as the Little Sapa because to this small district, you will be living with the culture of ethnic minorities such as Dao, Tay, San Chi … admiring mountain scenery, inhaling anise and cinnamon scent, or hearing the whispering sounds of small streams.
