Quảng Ninh, as well as being home to native Vietnamese, also features ethnic groups like the Dao, Tày, Sán Dìu, Sán Chay and Hoa.
Essentially, they arrived from the north, having immigrated between 300 and 400 years ago, and are spread throughout the whole province. Population-wise, these groups account for 10.8% of the whole province.
Today, these traditional cultural values are still present among the ethnic groups of Quảng Ninh. Every form of culture bears a distinctive character, clearly expressing the requirements and special characteristics of their way of life. It is what remains special and mysterious in the villages and hamlets where they live.
