Mr. Nguyen Viet Bang, a resident of Hai Lang district (Quang Tri) confided: I heard that Phuoc Tich Ancient Village had a village fair, so my friends and I came here early in the morning. Coming here, besides visiting ancient houses and peaceful gardens, we also enjoyed many delicious dishes and strange products made by the people in the village. The products here are very diverse. I hope the upcoming market fairs will be held on a larger scale, bringing many typical products of other regions for visitors to enjoy and experience.

Mr. Doan Quyet Thang, Deputy Head of Phuoc Tich Ancient Village Management Board, said that this is the second time a market fair has been held. In the future, we will hold regular, periodic fairs with the frequency of 2 times a month. The fair is a response to Hue Festival 2020.
