Northern Vietnam ????????
■ LUNG PHIN, VIETNAM: I've always wanted to see the terrace rice fields in the mountains of Northern Vietnam. We've all seen photos of these stunning testaments to mankind's most formidable invention; agriculture, but what are they like in real life?
Do they live up to the hype and how easy are they to find? Not knowing what to expect I set out east, trailing along Vietnam's northern most border with China in search of the most stunning mountain range I could find.
