(VNS) Yen Bai Province in the north will organise a cultural and tourism event to promote its Mu Cang Chai terraced fields as a tourism destination.
It will be held from September 26 to 29 under the framework of the Culture, sports and tourism week highlighting national landscapes of terraced fields.
Organisers have asked several communes in the area to prepare to display traditional local products like musical instruments, violet glutinous rice, folk remedy, wines, and banh day (a kind of rice cake).
Some will also showcase products like brocade, embroidery, honey, tea, traditional herbal medicines, and others.
The event, titled Sac Mau Tay Bac (The Northwest Colour), is expected to be held from September 27 to 30 with 14 pavilions.
Mu Cang Chai's 2,300ha of terraced fields have been cultivated by the H'mong people for hundreds of years.
In recent years it has become a popular tourist destination. .—VNS
