Vietnam National Villages for Ethnic minorities is good place to visit for both local people and foreigners. There are many houses that are symbols of Vietnamese ethnic minorities from North to the South of Vietnam with other special decorations belonged to each minority.

The driver was good and we covered the whole ethnic village.... More

For a quick overview experience pertinent to some of the major cultural influences in Vietnam's history, this site has a lot to offer in a pretty short time. One could acquire much of the same with lengthy trips to Phan Rang or Soc Trang, but this compound can educate you quickly and with fewer steps. The Khmer temple complex is... More
