The northernmost province Ha Giang is organising the first buckwheat flower festival in Dong Van’s Ancient Quarter from November 13-15. The event will include cultural performances, a buckwheat wine festival, a photography exhibition and workshops on buckwheat products.

According to Deputy Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee Tran Quy Duc, the festival aims to promote the cultural value of the Dong Van Karst Plateau, including the beautiful image of buckwheat in full bloom.

The event is expected to promote the province’s tourism potential and services with a view to attracting more investments, he added.

The buckwheat (Fagopyrum Esculentum) plant grows in clusters of small pinkish white flowers and produces triangular shaped edible seeds.

The ethnic H’Mong cultivate two crops of buckwheat every year, which bloom between April and May. The flowers are sensitive to sunlight, changing their colour from white in the early morning to pink in the afternoon.

Buckwheat in full bloom is a spectacular sight, drawing flocks of tourist to Ha Giang and its neighbouring mountainous areas, such as Lao Cai province.
