A myriad of activities will take place at the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism in Son Tay Town's Dong Mo, on the outskirts of Hanoi, throughout this October, attracting the participation of 13 ethnic groups who live in the village.

Entitled “Season comes with flowers’ colour”, the month-long programme will include flower planting activities to beautify the village, and taking care of ‘tam giac mach’ (buckwheat) flower and ‘da quy’ (wild sunflower) gardens in the village.

Traditional crafts will also be introduced to visitors on the occasion, including bamboo weaving, together with interesting folk games such as bamboo pole dancing, walking on stilts, and ‘con’ (a ball made of colourful pieces of cloth) throwing.

In addition, traditional rituals of participating ethnic groups will be re-enacted at the village, including the Co Tu people’s installation of 'cay neu' (a tall bamboo tree with decorations used to ward off evil spirits), the Kho Mu people’s new-season welcoming ceremony, and the Khmer people’s Kathina (robe offering) ceremony.

Visitors to the village can also try their hands at making and trading cakes, and can join in peace-praying rituals, which take place every weekend at Khmer pagodas and Cham temples in the village.
