Wet rice civilization

Rhythm of city life - besides the bustling and vibrant cities, there are always peaceful and gentle moments imprinted with Vietnamese culture, that is when the day has not begun. When you visit an old house hidden in a deep alley, sip a cup of sidewalk or visit a small village on the outskirts.

Religions - with its convenient location for both road and sea transportation, Vietnam has easy access to the world's major religions: Buddhism, Christianity and Islam, however, beliefs are important. The most popular one in Vietnamese culture is Vietnamese Folk religion, also known as Dao Mau. The worship of the mother model was born from wet rice civilization, reflecting the people's view of nature and the sky, which is deeply rooted in community life. In 2017, UNESCO officially recognized "Practicing the worship of Mother God in Vietnam" as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity. We will take you back to the roots of the culture of the Vietnamese people with the only programs about religion and belief of Vietnam.
