    We are interested in a photographic tour to the Yuanyang rice terraces in November 21 to 24 '. We have heard that there is NO water in the fields at that period, but only mud. Could you confirm this ?

    I plan to visit Yuanyang for a photography, but consider to come from Hekou since we will visit Hanoi and take a trin to Lao Cai. How far (distance and time/hour) from Hekou to Yuanyang ? What itinerary do you suggest for photography ? I would prefer starting and ending in Hekou since our flight coming and leaving from Hanoi. Thanking you for your kind cooperation. Regards, Wartono

    Since I was interested to visit a similar but shortened tour as your CFT-YN-06, but without the Stone Forest (I was there before), could you please advice a 6- or 7-day tour with focus on the Yuanyang rice fields and minorities please ? I am a single traveller and can possible arrive in Kunming on december 22 or 23. IF I could join with a group, that is fine to reduce costs but if I have to go in private tour, you can send me a calculation as well please. Thank you, Eddy

    Interested in a short tour (6 days) to include photographing ethnic people engaged in traditional activities and also 3 days of varying vantage points of the Yuanyang rice paddies. What do the rice paddies look like in early Jan? Colors/fog? Would I have options to photograph local people inside their homes or work place? Price for 2 people for early January 2012. Thanks!
