Welcome to Tra Vinh

About 300,000 ethnic Khmer live in Tra Vinh province. They may seem an invisible minority as they all speak fluent Vietnamese and there’s nothing outwardly distinguishing about their clothing or lifestyle. Dig a bit deeper and discover that Khmer culture is alive and well in these parts of Vietnam.

There is also a small but active Chinese community in Tra Vinh, one of the few such communities that remain in the Mekong Delta region.
