NDO - In the early winter when the first northeast winds arrive, Mexican sunflowers begin to come into full bloom, turning the roadsides and hillsides throughout north-western Vietnam into vibrant and bright yellows.

Along the roads in Dien Bien Province, Mexican sunflowers are in full bloom, creating a romantic and idyllic background.

The cool weather in early November is the time that Mexican flowers begin to yellow the hills and mountains in Dien Bien.
