(HBO) - On the occasion of the Independence Day 2nd September, I with my friends travelled to the beautiful Mong village in Hang Kia commune (Mai Chau). We stayed at the Sung Y Mua’s homestay of Hang Kia village. This is the first time I witnessed the bustling atmosphere of enjoying the Independence Day of the Mong ethnic people, all the houses killed the buffalos, pigs and made many kinds of cakes, etc. Mong ethnic guys and girls dressed in colorful costumes to the market.

Visitors are not only immersed in the scenery and culture of the Mong ethnic village of Hang Kia commune, but also feel interested in exploring and sightseeing to the homestay tourist destinations in the province. On the occasion of the Independence Day 2nd September, on the bending route of Road 6, we can easily catch the images of each other delegation of visitor coming to the beautiful villages of Hoa Binh province.

The community- based tourism of Hoa Binh province attracts visitors by the beautiful natural sceneries of the river and the forest. The rooftops of stilt houses, the flowing streams are all simple and rustic; creating the unique character of the community- based tourism villages. The culture and customs of the Dao, Muong, Thai and Mong ethnic people have become an attraction to tourists. Whoever comes once will want to come back more. Tourists would have a chance to have meals, stay with and work with the local people. These unforgettable experiences help indigenous people and tourists to be close together. People seem to join together to share culture and customs to better understand the cultural value of the ancient ethnic minorities. At present, there are 150 homestay households in Da Bac, Cao Phong, Tan Lac, Lac Son, Yen Thuy and Mai Chau districts. These are the famous community tourism business of the province.
