This is a tea plantation in the “sugar-cane” area. People here often calls it the “Taiwan tea gardens”. There is a heart-shaped with five layers of tea each year that couples often come here for taking wedding photography. Somewhere in the winds of plateau, there are the laughing voices of children after a class or a soft smiling tone of local women, the singing sounds of birds, all combined with the melody of a mountain flute… All these things have made an unspoiled beautiful Moc Chau plateau, a great-enchanted one.
