People go to the fair to exchange feelings and wish everyone and every family all the best in the New Year. Folk games are also organized to serve the fair participants. Thus, the fair attracts a large number of participants of all ages.

According to the explanation of the elders from My Loi village, the three-day market meeting on a high hill in the village is aimed to create a joyful spring atmosphere, and also an occasion to clean up the central market area, so as to welcome traders back to the market in the New Year, and be favorable and fortunate.

Hue News would like to introduce to readers a photo reportage on the Tet market in My Loi village, captured by Trung Phan, the photographer.

The market is held in the high hill, also known as the “chợ cồn” (the hill market). People have gone to the market since early in the morning

Hue people have a little joy in gathering family members, and relatives on weekends; this demonstrates the cultural beauty imbued with love.
