Between the cluttered and chaotic cities, lie sprawling rice paddies and tranquil villages. To the north, these forests and fields butt up to ragged mountains decorated with sparkling waterfalls. During the rainy season from June to October the north easterly corner of the country casts an emerald hue as the fresh rice shoots cover the landscape. To the south, dramatic limestone cliffs jut up like prehistoric skyscrapers, often topped with lush rainforest and encircled by pristine beaches.
