  • |, TP | March 21, 2023 08:00 AM

Visiting the northern mountainous province of Lai Chau at this time of the year provides an ideal opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the docynia indica flower.

Docynia indica flower is mainly grown in the northwestern provinces of Son La, Yen Bai, Lao Cai and Lai Chau. The fruit of this kind of tree can be mixed with alcohol and honey.



Mong ethnic minority girls embroidering flower skirts, young men playing the flute or children playing under docynia indica trees have become the topic of many artists and poets.

Docynia indica trees are in different areas in Lai Chau with Dao San, Sin Ho, Sin Suoi Ho and Ta Leng being the hubs. However, the fruit in Dao San has a better taste.

Docynia indica trees can develop well in unfavourable weather conditions.


Lai Chau is also covered by white plum blossoms and the yellow colour of wild cabbage flowers.
