Diverse activities are to be held during the program, including a tour to fully experience the beauty of Vietnamese Tet in a traditional market space, ethnic art performances at Mong Phu communal house yard, check-in at the most unique spots in the village, and booths to introduce local specialties, handicraft products and craft villages.
It also has a space for visitors to experience traditional Tet customs with activities such as calligraphy, To He (toy figurines) shaping, and folk games.
People and tourists can also learn about traditional customs during the traditional Tet festival such as New Year's Eve ceremony, the carp fish release, and gifts of Li Xi or lucky money, together with the unique and famous culinary culture of Duong Lam.
