Joyous folk festivals after Tet

As every year, the country is joyously celebrating its folk festival season following Tet (Lunar New Year).

In the Northern region, most of these festivals like the Huong Pagoda, Giong and Go Dong Da festivals take place during the first month of the lunar new year in Hanoi, Ba Chu Kho Temple in Bac Ninh Province, Yen Tu Pagoda in Quang Ninh Province, Tran Temple and Vieng Market in Nam Dinh Province.
All the festivals are held to honor the memory and glory of our ancestors and pray for the future peace and stability of our people and country.
