Last week in the Northern Province of Ha Tay, construction began on a village destined to become a living exhibit, illustrating the daily life and customs of ethnic minorities living in the region.
|The groundbreaking ceremony took place on May 19.|
Covering an area of 198 ha, the village will recreate the daily activities of local inhabitants, including the manufacture of production tools and handicraft products and wet-rice cultivation.
It will also offer a glimpse into the culture, traditions and religious architecture of the 54 ethnic minority groups living there and act as a gathering point for local festivals and sport activities.
The village is part of a project entitled “Viet Nam Ethnic Culture and Tourism Village”, approved by the government in 1997. It is expected to welcome visitors as a national cultural center in 2020.
