The provincial People’s Committee on March 10 licensed Oxalis Holiday Co. Ltd. to pilot the tour from March 1, 2021 to February 8, 2022.
According to Vietnam's Committee for Ethnic Minority Affairs, the Ruc is one of the 10 most mysterious tribes in the world. They live near the Vietnam-Laos border line, with unique culture and custom.
During the flooding season, despite being isolated by floodwater, the Ruc people still maintain their normal activities.
Visitors will have interesting experience while touring the village via kayak or paddleboard.
The Ma Coong ethnic minority group’s drum beating festival and traditional boat racing on Kien Giang River in Quang Binh have been recognised as national intangible cultural heritages by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
Both child marriages and incestuous marriages among ethnic minority groups have been a long-term problem for local administrations in Nghe An and Quang Binh, although they have taken measures to curb them over the years.
