    Organizing festival is one of the ways to greet Spring, but festivals in other regions are not the same. If you visit the Central Highlands at this time, you will see your eyes one unique culture by Ethnic minority people. This is partly highlighted through their festivals and cuisine in spring when people set aside their field work and enjoy springtime.

    E De and Mínong villagers think that, spring will knock their doors as soon as they finish working on their crops. They are funny and happy in new brocade clothes to attend small parties. They can invite each other to share in the joy with them. It is also the occasion to show gratitude to the gods, ancestors and pray for health.

    Not having the small parties like E De and Mínong people, the elders in Cu Lie MíNong village, Cu Mígar district, Dak Lak province show their traditional customs, such as living in stilts houses, drinking Can wine (wine drunk out of a jar through pipes), beating gongs and brocade weaving.

    Culinary culture and the dishes of central highlanders are quite special with ingredients mainly from nature. Their favourite taste is for spicy foods.

    The 100-year-old Tring village is the place where E De people in Buon Ho town, Dak Lak province are most numerous. With State support, a cultural house was built, providing villagers with a communal space. A newly established brocade weaving co-operative has created more jobs for local residents.

    Like other regions in Vietnam, Whenever saying goodbye Tet (Lunar New Year festival), people in the Central Highland attend spring festivals. Itís the occasion when the central highlanders not only enjoy the most delicious foods made by themselves but also joins interesting folk games including stick pushing, fencing and crossbow shooting. An indispensable part of the festival is the resounding sound of gongs. Y Te has a valuable collection of 30 large and small gongs. Whenever the Spring comes people beat gongs to bring a festive spirit into all over the villages.

    The land as well as people in the Central Highland is always a secret and new thing for people to learn and discover. If you are have never stood on this land, please apply Vietnam visa and join festivals here.
