Accordingly, the floating market will cover a water surface area of more than one hectare with floating houses, boats and cruises at Dong Mo Lake of the Tourism and Culture Village of Vietnamese Ethnic Minority Groups.

Visitors will have a chance to experience how people exchange goods, fruits and many other commodities on their vessels, and also transport agricultural products. They can also enjoy Don Ca Tai Tu (Southern Amateur Music) at the floating market, and also see the daily activities and local life of Mekong Delta people on the river.

The event is part of the many activities in the framework of ‘Week of National Unity-Vietnam Cultural Heritage’ to take place in Son Tay Town in Hanoi this November.

The Cultural Week will mark the 83rd anniversary of Vietnam National United Front on November 18, the Vietnamese Cultural Heritage Day on November 23, and the inauguration of the Khmer Pagoda Complex in the Tourism and Culture Village of Vietnamese Ethnic Minority Groups.
