QUẢNG NINH — A festival to honour the ethnic traditional cultures and natural beauty of the border district of Bình Liêu in northern Quảng Ninh Province will be celebrated from October 29 to November 20.
The “Golden Season Festival” will include a variety of activities for participants to get immersed in local cultures and explore the beauty of the terraced fields during the ripening rice season such us a running race on October 29, cơm mới (new rice) worshiping ceremony on November 4, a pageant for most beautiful girl in traditional costume, a paragliding programme and an ethnic women’s football tournament on November 5.
“Golden Season Festival” has been held annually by the People’s Committee of Bình Liêu District since 2020.
Bình Liêu has become a new destination for tourists in recent years thanks to its primitive beauty.
Although the locality is endowed with a charming beauty all year-round, the district particularly strikes visitors when fall transitions to winter. From the glossy yellow hues of staircase rice fields to the magnificent mountain landscape and natural waterfalls, the area visually amazes at every turn.
More than 90 per cent of locals in the mountainous district are ethnic minorities such as Tày, Sán Chỉ and Dao. The area is also home to special cultural festivities such as the Soọng Cô and Sán Cố folk song singing festivals and Lục Nà festival. — VNS
