The Muong people consider Hoa Binh, one of the nine provinces in Vietnam where the Kinh people are not the majority, as their capital. The Muong are culturally and socially closely related to the Kinh. They live alongside the Kinh and other ethnic groups in the province.

The Kinh:

The Kinh people are scattered throughout the province, with many migrating to Hoa Binh since the 1960s. In recent years, cultural and economic exchanges have attracted many Kinh people from other provinces to settle and do business in Hoa Binh.

The Thai

The Thai people mainly reside in Mai Chau district. Despite the long-standing influence of the Muong people, the Thai have preserved their unique cultural characteristics. This is a valuable asset for developing tourism and preserving traditional culture. Ban Lac tourist area is an attractive destination in the province.

The Tay

The Tay people mainly live in Da Bac district, coexisting with the Muong and Dao people. And the Tay have many customs and cultural similarities to the Thai, especially in language. However, in terms of attire, the Tay in Da Bac resemble the White Thai people in Phu Yen and Bac Yen districts of Son La province.

The Dao

The Dao people live in Da Bac, Luong Son, Kim Boi, Cao Phong, and Hoa Binh City. The Hmong people predominantly reside in Hang Kia and Pa Co villages in Mai Chau district. These two ethnic groups used to be nomadic, but have transitioned to a settled lifestyle and achieved significant socioeconomic development.
With its ethnic diversity and proximity to the Red River Delta, only about 80-100 km from Hanoi, combined with beautiful landscapes, Hoa Binh province has great potential for tourism development.
