Dubbed Hoa Binh Province’s Culture and Tourism Festival, the event gathered thousands of representatives from the province performing art, gongs, offering cuisine and local delicacies, folk games and displaying artful photos. 

Women of the Muong ethnic group from Hoa Binh province perform gongs around Hoan Kiem Lake.

Addressing the opening ceremony on January 22 night, Chairman of the Hoa Binh People’s Committee Bui Van Khanh said Hoa Binh civilization is famed all over the world and the province also hosts an honorable revolutionary tradition and diverse natural resources.

The province is home to six ethnic groups, who have made up distinctive indigenous cultural features, he said.

He called Hoa Binh a beautiful land created by mountains, hills and the magnificent Da (Black) River. The Hoa Binh Hydropower Lake offers a romantic landscape with hundreds of green islands, which helps produce a stable source of electricity for the whole country.

Through this event, the province wants to introduce domestic and foreign tourists to its tourism products and the profound humane beauty of the land, he said.

Khanh pledged the province will offer the best conditions for enterprises and tourists visiting and investing in the province.

The event, which is set to be close on January 24, attracted a sizable crowd.
