Hoang Su Phi terraced fields recognised as national heritageThe terraced fields in Hoang Su Phi district of the northern province of Ha Giang were officially recognised as a national heritage site by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MoCST) on November 1. The terraces are evidence of centuries of wet rice cultivation by ethnic minorities in Hoang Su Phi, including the Nung, Dao and La Chi, and they have great cultural and historical value in addition to being aesthetically beautiful. Chairman of the Hoang Su Phi district People’s Committee, Hoang Hai Ly, said that the district aims to create projects to preserve the fields and promote their tourism potential. The fields were among the sites recently recongnised by the MoCST as significant parts of the nation’s heritage, including three other landscapes: the Trang An caves in Ninh Binh province, the Pusamcap cave system in Lai Chau province, and the Chua Tien caves in Hoa Binh province. . 26 northern beauties Miss Ethnic Vietnam enter finaleTwenty-six young women from 14 cities and provinces in the northern region will compete in the final round of the second Miss Ethnic Vietnam 2011 pageant in Ho Chi Minh City from November 26 to…
