Hi, I’m planning to visit Ha Giang in April. Can I see Buckwheat Flower Season in this month?
Buckwheat Flower or Tam Giac Mach in Vietnamese is a special flower growing in the northern mountainous provinces of Vietnam. Note that this flower doesn’t grow naturally, rather it is planted by farmers. Therefore, the time of buckwheat season really depends on the farmers.
Normally, buckwheat flowers are in blossom in October & November in Ha Giang Province and in March & April in Bac Giang Province. Hence, if you want to see buckwheat flower season, you should visit Bac Giang Province in April, instead of Ha Giang as you are planning. In addition to admiring the beauty of buckwheat flowers, you should try the wine and cake made from them, as it is very special.
