In order to create this beautiful scene, mankind has to labor years after years. The reward is not only the crop; it's the beauty spreading from mountain to mountain.
We returned to Yuanyang after 2 years and shot this picture on the second week of the lunar-calendar year. Yuanyang is now no longer a deserted and forgotten destination.
I hope my humble contribution will help promote this destination as UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site, as Nhiem and I will join in the related theme, Yuanyang for UNESCO World Heritage.
Please enjoy and critique. Thanks.

Welcome back to Yuanyang.
It's interesting to see that in any given day of the year, the destination still attract a lot of photographers and viewers.
All my best wishes for your attempt to promote this location as "UNESCO World Heritage" site. Reading your texts about Yuanyang, I believe you will be successful.

I still regret that I missed the chance to join you and Chu Nhiem and Steve to YY 2 months ago.
Best wishes for your promotion for YY to be UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.

Thank you for a pleasant view and atmosphere of the location. The quanity of visitors in your photo would convince more people to come, and would end up with Yuanyang in the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage as you are promoting.
I noticed your effor as rare since most people would only vote for their own country. Your promotion has crossed the international border and bypassed your selfish.

Thanh: yes, This place is on the list. Ironically, yours is one of the best, most "complete" images from this now infamous tourist trap. It's a humorous, maybe a little saddening post - at the same time. best, c
