An Giang province’s Ox Racing Festival aims towards international event

The Bay Nui Ox Racing Festival in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang is expected to become an international event under a project recently approved by the provincial People's Committee.

The project on the conservation of the Bay Nui Ox Racing Festival has a total funding of nearly 5.8 billion VND, of which 2.9 billion VND comes from the provincial budget and nearly 1.2 billion VND is contributed by Tinh Bien and Tri Ton districts.

An Giang will develop tours connecting cultural and historical relic sites, and tourism destinations across the province with venues of the festival in Tri Ton and Tinh Bien districts.

The festival is projected to be rolled out in the Mekong Delta region and upgraded to an international event with the participation of Khmer people from Cambodia and other Southeast Asian nations.
