NDO – A rural market was held at the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism in the Dong Mo tourism area of Son Tay Town, Hanoi, last weekend, attracting thousands of visitors to the village.

Visitors to the market not only had then chance to enjoy folk songs and dances of H’mong, Ha Nhi, Thai, Tay and Nung ethnic people but also to taste indigenous food and drink, including corn wine, thang co (hot pot with a mixture of horse meat and internal organs), seven-coloured glutinous rice, grilled fishes, and men men (corn cake).

The event provided an opportunity for marketgoers to explore the cultural diversity of ethnic groups in the northern regions.
