Inaugurated 12 years ago, the Cultural and Tourist Village of Vietnam’s Ethnic Groups is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Hanoi’s suburbs. As a true open-air museum, it presents the typical cultural characteristics of the 54 ethnic groups.
Located 40 km from the city center, this place has become a must-see for tourists. Perhaps more importantly, it is an ideal place to learn about diversity for the younger generations.
Visitors have the opportunity to discover some of the cultural features of Vietnam’s 54 ethnic groups, the communal house system, the houses on stilts, the religious ceremonies, the typical costumes of each ethnic group, etc. A large outdoor space also allows them to admire the scenery while participating in community activities.
Consolidation of the great bloc of national unity

It is a place to connect and consolidate the national unity bloc. It has become the “common home” of the 54 ethnic groups.
This village has also participated in several international programs such as promoting the traditional costumes of Vietnam’s ethnic groups in the UK on the occasion of the 40the Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 2013, the Vietnamese Culture Week in Laos in 2013, the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Solidarity Night in 2015 at the Cultural and Tourist Village of Vietnamese Ethnic Groups, the International Tourism Fair (MITT) in Russia in 2017, the Vietnam International Tourism Fair (VITM) in Hanoi in 2017…
