The artisans have devoted their lives to the preservation and promotion of intangible cultural heritages in the province.

Through the tourism promotion programme, Thai Nguyen wished to enhance the cultural exchanges, solidarity and mutual understandings among ethnic groups in the province as well as seek more cooperation and investment opportunities for tourism development.

On the occasion, the smart tourism portal thainguyentourism.vn (trial version) was officially launched to help visitors to find information about the locality’s destinations, tourism and culture, while businesses and management agencies can update the necessary information.

A programme introducing tea – a specialty of Thai Nguyen Province and performing intangible cultural heritages among ethnic groups in the province was held earlier on the same day, attracting a large number of locals and visitors.

Thai Nguyen possesses numerous famous landscapes and historical and cultural relic sites, including the national special relic ATK Dinh Hoa, where President Ho Chi Minh and many Party, State and army leaders stayed and worked during the resistance war against French colonialism. The province welcomed over 2.5 million tourists in 2018.
