The yellow paddy fields alongside Tam Giang Lagoon in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue provide a visual treat.
People hurry to complete the harvest, with villages busy with farm work. Locals are cutting the paddy and then taking it home for drying.
According to people in Loc Binh Commune, Phu Loc District, the location of their fields, next to the brackish water of Tam Giang Lagoon, provides their rice with a sweet taste and unique fragrance when cooked.
The attractive local scenery is popular with photographers and DTiNews presents some images from the location:

Nearly 200 kites, flown by 21 teams from across Vietnam, competed in the kite festival on Cua Dai Beach.
The 7th annual kite festival, which took place on May 21, was organised by the Hoi An Sports and Culture Office along with the Victoria Hoi An Hotel. This year’s theme was “Victoria-Hoi An and Sea”, and focused on raising awareness of problems facing the local ecological system.
This year’s festival was grander than in past years.
The first prize was awarded to Nguyen Truong Huy, whose kite resembled an octopus.
In the meantime, a ray kite and a starling kite won the second prize.
