HA GIANG (VNS) — A traditional ‘love market' of minority groups will be a key event at a cultural tourism festival to be held in Ha Giang province from May 13 to 16.

 "The Khau Vai Love Market is a unique cultural activity of the local people and has become a legendary festival of people in love, who cannot get married due to various reasons," Tran Kim Ngoc, vice-chairman of the northern mountainous province's Meo Vac District that is hosting the event, said. "They come here for a date every 27th day of the third lunar month to share their sorrows and happiness in life."

Art shows depicting legendary love stories and a beauty contest will also be organised during the four-day festival. — VNS
