For many years, the small Hon Yen Islet in Phu Yen has attracted young travelers and photographers with its pristine beauty and carpets of coral reefs, exposed during low tide.

Thien Nguyen also won fourth place in the “Nature” category for his shot of terraced rice fields in Mu Cang Chai District in northern Yen Bai Province.
Mu Cang Chai is around seven hours’ drive to the northwest of Hanoi. It sits at 1,000 meters (3,300 feet) above sea level at the foot of the Hoang Lien Son mountain range. The H’mong ethnic minority started carving rice terraces into the mountain range centuries ago and continue to cultivate the crop today.
