Tour Activities

Cultural Performance


The mountains of North Vietnam are home to an incredible diversity of ethnic minority groups that have a rich cultural life, various beliefs and speak their own languages. Our homestays are located in villages of different ethnic minority groups such as Red Dao and Nung people. Our homestay families are very warm-hearted and eager to show you their local life and ancient traditions. On request they can perform various traditional customs such as the mystical firedance of the Red Dao people. The Shaman will prepare many items for this ritual such as rice, rice wine, boiled chicken, chicken blood and a silver ring. During a ceremony that lasts for several hours the Shaman worships the Fire God for luck, happiness and to pray for the avoidance of demons and diseases. A pile of wood is set on fire and a group of young men will dance in the fire coal pile without getting burnt. The fire dance is a wild and mystical cultural activity that will certainly touch and captivate you. Other cultural activities that you are be able to witness are singing performances or the magic stick game, a fun activity that you can join in after a good meal at your homestay.
