HÀ NỘI — The Tương Bình Hiệp lacquer village in the southeastern province of Bình Dương is an attractive tourism destinations as its lacquer products are famous nationwide and exported to many countries, including Germany, France, Canada and Japan.
Located in Thủ Dầu Một City, the village activities began in the 1860s when people from the central region arrived in Tương Bình Hiệp and established the lacquer handicraft.
The lacquer works are available in various designs, models and colours. The most common products are paintings, boxes, vases and pots, made with mother-of-pearl or eggshell, or painted works.
Last month, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism recognised the lacquer handicraft of Tương Bình Hiệp Village as a national intangible heritage.— VNS
