VTV.vn - One year after coming out as the indigenous people in the movie Kong: Skull Island, local residents in Hoa Lu district, Ninh Binh province have continued their roles, not in movies but in the tourism services of Trang An.

Whether it's sunny or rainy, hot or cold, the farmers always come to the film set early for make up and to prepare for a day of entertaining tourists. They take pictures with tourists and reenact their film scenes, bringing excitement to visitors.

This new job has not only helped these farmers earn extra income but it has also helped them show their pride for their homeland.

The aboriginal village has been restored to the one seen in the blockbuster movie. With 36 rattan tents and 50 enthusiastic aborigines, the film's atmosphere has been recreated for tourists. This is a new spin on tourism in Trang An.

Some people used to feel shy when they were in front of a crowd, while some have had to split their time between working here and in the field. But no one has the thought of giving up their roles as aboriginal people on the film set. Perhaps they all understand that what they are doing now will contribute greatly to the development of tourism in their homeland.
