Hanoi (VNA) – Several cultural events are running at the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism in Hanoi until August 31 that depict ethnic Khmer people’s lives in southern Vietnam.

The daily life and unique rituals of Khmer people will be portrayed through the performances by Khmer artisans from the Mekong Delta province of Soc Trang from August 19-21.

They will perform traditional Khmer rituals and teach visitors how to make “banh xeo” (sizzling cake), “bun nuoc leo” (rice vermicelli noodle soup in savoury broth with fish, roast pork and shrimp), “banh gung” (ginger cake), and “banh ong” (tube cake).

Exhibitions will also take place featuring items used by Khmer people and photographs depicting their floating life which revolves around rivers and canals.-VNA
