“Market of Love” in Khau Vai, Ha Giang province. One of the most interesting and authentic ethnic markets in the mountains of northern Vietnam, which is held only once a year. Young people from ethnic groups build relationships on this place, but also meet here people, who were unable to live together. This event also held various board games, competitions, festivities and people are having fun. On the 27th of the third lunar month, local ethnic women and men put on their best traditional costumes to go to the market, where they are free to meet with their ex-lovers in public. Husbands and wives arrive at the market together before they both look for their past partners among the crowd. Spouses do not get angry or jealous because the meeting at the market is just a temporary moment and does not influence their daily lives or relationship.
