Dao Xa Regatta
30 Aug 2017 - 30 Aug 2017 | Ha Noi

If you are near Hanoi on August 30, you have a chance to experience the exciting Dao Xa boat race in Phu Tho province not far away. At midnight the locals head down to Dao Xa lagoon for a boat race between two black sampans. The race recalls a legend wherein Ly Bon, who became the last king of the Le Dynasty, was helped by the miraculous intervention of two royal boats and the genie of the waters. The two vessels race across the Dao lagoon and back to the sound of drums.
