In November, mountainside paths leading to Ba Vi National Park in northern Vietnam are covered with wild sunflowers in full bloom, attracting thousands of travelers. 

Ba Vi National Park, around 60 kilometers from the heart of Hanoi, is a fantastic place for visitors to enjoy fresh air and peace while they unwind from the stress of city life.

Ba Vi enters the season of wild sunflowers in November. The season makes for a great opportunity for travelers who want to save moments of early winter with blooming wild sunflowers.

At the entrance of the national park, travelers can enjoy the bright yellow color of the wild sunflowers. Here, paths are lined with these yellow flowers, forming a very poetic view.

After a week of hard work, Phuong Anh, 27, visited Ba Vi National Park with her mom.

According to Phuong Anh, the best time to visit the national park is in mid-November.

“To have great photos, you should wear bright-colored vintage clothes,” Phuong Anh shared.

Nguyen Thi Thu Hien in Ung Hoa District, Hanoi said this year her trip to Ba Vi National Park was not as smooth as usual because of the bad weather.

“On the way there, my friends and I got caught in the rain. Fortunately, when we reached the best spot to take photos of wild sunflowers, the sun began to shine once again. The beautiful photos we got were worth the effort,” Hien said.

Ba Vi National Park is also ideal for camping at this time of the year.

Besides, there are some spots worth a visit in the park, such as an ancient church, a cactus garden, and more.

Recently, the rangers have set up checkpoints to stop some young people from traveling by motorbike without wearing helmets or riding motorbikes on one wheel.

Young visitors should follow the traffic rules, or they cannot enter the national park, even if they have bought entrance tickets.
