First ever recorded snow 300km south of Hanoi, Vietnam

Snow blanketed Vietnam and Laos the last week of January 2016 breaking hundreds of cold and snow records.

There is really something strange going on right now. Are we entering a period of global cooling in the atmosphere and the oceans? Is our Earth about to begin a steep drop in global temperatures off its present global temperature plateau?

LAO CAI— Sa Pa Town in the northern province of Lao Cai, a major national tourist attraction, wears an even more attractive look now with snowfall of more than five centimetres.

Officials of the Nui Xe Forest Management Station in the town’s Hoang Lien National Park say the snowfall has led to constant traffic congestion on the road from Lao Cai City to Sa Pa, as thousands of tourists flock to the town to admire the rare sight.
