HÀ NỘI — An event featuring north-western cuisine and culture is taking place at Mường Thanh hotels nationwide and in Laos.

Tết Mường Thanh, is organised during the month of March at the chain of Mường Thanh hotels as a response to the signature spring festival of Điện Biên Province, or Hoa Ban Festival, which takes place on March 17-19. March is the time orchids and peach blossom everywhere in the north-western region. Ethnic people living in the region organise many festivals to pray for good health and prosperity.
