The week aims to strengthen unity between all 54 Vietnamese ethnic groups, which needs to be respected, maintained and developed, according to Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Ho Anh Tuan. It is also a channel to introduce and popularise Viet Nam and the village - which is considered a "common house" of all 54 ethnic groups - to foreign friends.

Organisers will hold a range of traditional festivals, performances and dances, as well as the daily activities of people from the North, South and those who live on rivers and mountains.

At the village, visitors will get the chance to witness talented Ha Noi cooks prepare the capital's traditional dishes during an exhibition which will run throughout the week.

The exhibition will also present the best of Ha Noi's traditional handicraft villages, with artisans showcasing their talents.

The well-known floating market of Cai Rang and Phung Hieu of Can Tho Province will be recreated as part of the festivities.

"We have tried our best to make the market as realistic as possible. All boats and junks were transported from Can Tho. While farm vendors will transport their products here," said Deputy Minister Tuan. "We hope all visitors will enjoy real experiences while shopping at these special markets and remember to bring a big bag of money because many specialties of different regions will be available."

Those who missed the Bay Nui cow race earlier this month in An Giang Province are in luck because 70 jockeys and six oxen will travel to Ha Noi and race in Dong Mo.

Another highlight will be a sculpture camp featuring 30 artists from the Central Highlands provinces of Gia Lai, Dak Lak and Kon Tum.

Organisers will also introduce the spiritual rituals and ceremonies of various ethnic groups such as the Tay, Ta Oi, H'Mong and Thai.

Kites and flying kites are expected to play a starring role throughout the week. Additionally, workshops on preserving and promoting heritage and cultural values will be held during the event.

The opening ceremony will be aired live on VTV and broadcast on VOV radio.
