Nguyen Trung Thuong, Director of Ha Giang’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism said the recognition was part of an effort to promote the cultural identity of ethnic minorities which make up a big part of the population of Ha Giang.
Every year on lunar March 26th and 27th single men and women throughout the province gather at this 90-year-old market to look for a partner, making it an important cultural event.
Thuong said Ha Giang planned to revive market activities, build hotels and improve roads as part of a master plan to attract tourists to this area.
