Religion and Faith

From the very old time, Ben Tre was settled by several ethnic groups such as Viet (or Kinh), Khmer, Chinese, and Champa, and all have harmoniously cohabited for as long as centuries. Along the timeline, they were intermingling in bloodlines as well as culture, especially religion and faith.

Festivals and Holidays

Apart from national and international holidays, Ben Tre has some local festivals. Briefly, there are three most interested festivals, namely the Nghinh Ong Festival, the Nguyen Dinh Chieu Memorial Day and the Dong Khoi Anniversary, each has its own social and historical significance to the public life in Ben Tre.

The Gastronomy of Ben Tre

The common dishes here are those popular among farmers as well as urbaners. As the general socio-economic life has grown to a higher level, there would certainly be extended exchanges on various areas of life, and thus the differential line between urban and rural living standards have also been blurred.
