Mountain region festival links ethnic groups

Thừa Thiên – Huế Province begins its three-day culture, tourism and sports festival for ethnic minorities today (May 15).

The biennial festival is aimed at strengthening solidarity between the Ta Oi, Pa Co and Ko Tu ethnic groups.

Held in the mountainous A Lưới District, the festival is expected to attract about 700 people, including from the Nam Đồngg District, and other mountain communes.

They will compete in sport, cooking and music and also hold exhibitions.

Lê Thùy Chi, of the province’s Department of Culture, Tourism and Sports, said the festival was always a great spectacle, an opportunity for tourists.

Visitors could find homestays in the area and take part in tours with ethnic group guides, visiting sites in the district, forests and waterfalls.
