Highland market session held in Hanoi

A mountain market session, as part of the ‘Sac Mau Tay Bac’ (Colours of the Northwest) programme, is being held in Hanoi from April 26-28.

Visitors to the market can taste thang co - a traditional dish of the Mong ethnic people, com lam (rice cooked in bamboo-tubes), smoked ham and grilled chicken and drink banana wine and corn wine served in wooden bowls on black wooden tables.

They can buy some regional specialties, including forest vegetables, tea and bamboo sprouts put in papooses of Mong and Dao ethnic people or arranged in bamboo stalls, and watch the making of linen cloth of the Mong, Pieu scarfs by the Thai, and the colourful dress patterns by the Muong, Red Dao and Black Thai.

The event, jointly held by the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Tourism, some northern cities and the provinces of Hoa Binh, Son La, Lai Chau, Lao Cai, Yen Bai, Dien Bien, and Hanoi, is among the activities to mark the Vietnam Ethnic Group Cultural Day (April 19). (Source: VOV)
