VTV.vn - Ha Giang province and the ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will hold the 2nd national Hmong cultural day in mid November, with the participation of more than a dozen provinces where the Hmong live.

About 800 participants and hundreds of artisans from the villages will join the festival, which will focus on the role of the artist and express Hmong culture.

Traditional villages in Ha Giang are actively preparing for the festival. The district's gateway to the global geopark, Quan Ba, will bring products such as Thanh Van corn wine, Lung Tam brocade, and traditional Hmong music.

"The preservation of cultural identity and the development of  traditional craft villages serves the economic and social development of the people and improves their lives", Hang Duong Thanh - Vice Chairman of the People's Committee of Quan Ba District, Ha Giang Province - said.

"The Hmong people from Ha Giang are very pure. They always preserve their culture in each of their villages. This can create favourable conditions for tourism development in Ha Giang", Nguyen Van Son - Chairman of the People’s Committee of Ha Giang

Though the land is arid, there is a lack of food, and travel is difficult. But with a little ingenuity, the province has found a new kind of tourism resource.

Quan Ba and Ha Giang are now preparing for the Buckwheat flower season. From corn and flax, Buckwheat flowers are becoming a method of poverty reduction for the H'Mong, proving that cultural tourism is the way forward for the mountainous provinces.
