Lao Cai province cooperates with Sa Pa town to organize several tourism activities and art programs during the “Essence of the Northwest” Festival (Tinh hoa Tây Bắc) from August 26-28, 2022.

Ho Chi Minh City and eight Northwest provinces participate in the festival, including Phu Tho, Dien Bien, Ha Giang, Hoa Binh, Lai Chau, Lao Cai, Son La, and Yen Bai. The festival aims to promote the image, honor the culture of the Northwest ethnic groups, attract tourists and boost tourism.

On this occasion, Lao Cai launches a new tourism product, “Sa Pa lặng lẽ yêu – The Mong Show”, from 8pm from August 26 to August 27. The Mong people and artisans cooperate with the Organizers to perform. The content shows the daily life and culture of the Mong people. Thus, visitors can enjoy the idyllic life, mysterious spiritual life, skillfulness in casting forgings, carving, brocade weaving, wine and “thang co” making, the love stories with the sound of mountains and forests, leaf trumpets, and lip lutes in the folk music.

In addition, the other highlights are the “Connecting green aspirations” program (Kết nối khát vọng xanh) and the opening fireworks display. The event will be held at the central square, Nam Cuong ward, Lao Cai, at 8pm on August 27.
