Mu Cang Chai has a special national relic of terraced fields, with 99% of the population being ethnic minorities (mostly H’Mong people), Mu Cang Chai preserves many unique traditional cultural features of the West North.
The unique cultural traditions have brought Mu Cang Chai great potential for tourism development, especially cultural tourism.

- Future: An urban area of the future, modern, comfortable, meeting the needs of the new generation
