Baskets made of straw in Vietnam

Vietnam is a treasure trove for traditional arts and crafts. Though the origin of these styles of arts is from different countries like China, India etc., over time, they have evolved into something that is distinctly Vietnamese. The lacquerware, wooden and stone carvings are carefully and intricately detailed and nothing like this can be found elsewhere.

The traditional music and dances of this country are linked to various religious ceremonies and are performed during their festivals.
