The Dao Thanh Phan ethnic minority community in Quang Ninh has unique cultural practices including highly colorful traditional attires that brighten up a northern mountainous district.
|Their traditional yellow mud houses with the yin-yang tiled roofs are always built near rice fields and water sources to facilitate their work on the farm and at home.|
|Almost every Dao woman, old and young, is adept at embroidery. Before getting married, the Dao women embroider their wedding dresses by hand and also make dresses for their mother-in-law.|
|In October-November, their terraced fields enter the harvest season, and are a beautiful sight along the border road at Song Mooc Village in Dong Van Commune, about 30 km from downtown Binh Lieu. The Dao work on their rice fields from dawn to dusk.|
