HA NOI (VNS) — Friends of Vietnam Heritage (FVH) will host two excursions during this weekend that showcase how local Vietnamese people prepare for Tet – their biggest annual holiday.
Each trip will take visitors to Tay Tuu flower village to walk along the fields and enjoy different kinds of flowers that are sold during Tet. The group will then visit a pomelo garden in nearby Dien Village. Pomelos are used for ancestor offering trays during Tet.
The trip will continue to Phung Market, where local people are busy for the new year selling a variety of local products, before passing Duong Lieu Village which produces mien (vermicelli) for sale during Tet. Then turn to Son Dong lacquerware village to see the locals busy carving statues, parallel wood block couplets, altars and many items used for ancestor worship.
Both trips will start at 8.30am and return to Ha Noi around 4pm. To join the excursion, contact Mai at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0917294923.— VNS
