Luong Xuan Hoa, Chairman of the Vietnamese People Association in Udon Thani, said the late leader of Vietnam used to live and develop a revolutionary movement among the Vietnamese community in Udon Thani as well as Thailand at large in 1928 - 1929.

In 1957, when Ho Chi Minh was still alive, expatriates in Thailand set up altars in their home to worship him as a saint, Hoa noted.

Representatives of Vietnamese people in Udon Thani province pay tribute to President Ho Chi Minh on February 1.

On this occasion, he expressed his hope that the Vietnamese in Udon Thani will continue upholding solidarity and mutual support to weather pandemic-caused difficulties, preserve the country’s traditional culture, and always turn their hearts to the homeland.

Undon Thani is home to the largest number of Vietnamese-origin people in Thailand, numbering more than 15,000. Its Noong On village in Muong town, where Ho Chi Minh carried out revolutionary activities in 1928 - 1929, is currently a relic site treasured by the Vietnamese in Thailand.
