Binh Duong (VNA) – The Tuong Binh Hiep lacquer village in the southeastern province of Binh Duong is an attractive tourism destinations as its lacquer products are famous nationwide and exported to many countries, including Germany, France, Canada and Japan.

Located in Thu Dau Mot City, the village activities began in the 1860s when people from the central region arrived in Tuong Binh Hiep and established the lacquer handicraft.

The lacquer works are available in various designs, models and colours. The most common products are paintings, boxes, vases and pots, made with mother-of-pearl or eggshell, or painted works.

Last month, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism recognised the lacquer handicraft of Tuong Binh Hiep Village as a national intangible heritage.-VNA
