Muong Lo tourism week, a focus on tradition

An opening ceremony for Muong Lo Culture and Tourism Week 2016 took place on the night of September 17 at the stadium in Nghia Lo Town, northern Yen Bai province.

At the ceremony, the Thai ethnic minority members in Nghia Lo Town were honoured with the National Recognition of Intangible Cultural Heritage for their Han Khuong traditional performance.

The Muong Lo Culture and Tourism Week 2016 started on September 15 and will run through September 20, with the participation of over 1,000 amateur and professional artists.

Organized by the Yen Bai provincial People’s Committee, the week is part of ongoing co-operation between the locality and seven other northwestern provinces in celebration of the 45th anniversary of the establishment of Nghia Lo Town. The provinces also hope to attract more visitors to Yen Bai and to increase public awareness around preserving cultural values.

Various activities will take place during the week, including competitions and performances of traditional sports, a cultural festival of Thai ethnic folk arts, street performances entitled Colorful Northwest region , ritual ceremonies and traditional performances.

In addition, visitors will be introduced to the traditional cultures of the local ethnic minorities, through chances to observe locals picking and drying tea leaves, to sample Shan Tuyet tea and steamed sticky rice — two local specialties, —and to witness on-site tour guide competitions and photo exhibitions at the Memorial to President Ho Chi Minh.
