The Village of Ethnic Culture and Tourism will host traditional markets offering traditional food and delicacies of localities across the northern region from October 16-18.
Visitors will have the chance to taste and try their hand at making hundreds of traditional cakes and dishes, as well as enjoy funny, interesting folk games and puppetry.
Later, a so-called Ethnic Great Unity - Vietnam’s Cultural Heritage Week will be held from November 15 to 23 at the village by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) and other central agencies.
