Terraced fields in La Pan Tan village, Mu Cang Chai
Vietnam

La Pan Tan is a mountain village of H'mong ethnic people in Mu Cang Chai commune, Yen Bai province. Before 1996 this area was the land of poppies, all families planted poppy. After that, the local government had to implement a special policy, in the first year, each aldut person was allowed to keep 100sq.m of poppy field, the area of poopy was reduced in second year and after third year poppy was banned. In 2007, Mu Cang Chai's terraced field has been recognised as a national landscape. The most beautiful terraced field are located in three villages La Pan Tan, Che Cu Nha and Ze Xu Phing.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
