There are 4 main ethnic groups in the hamlet; Tay people make up 96%, and the rest are Kinh, Nung, and Dao people. The local people live in spectacular stilt houses which are erected on hills and terraces.
The decoration of the bedroom, altar, kitchen and living room in the home is specific to the ethnic culture. Tourists have found themselves in awe of this amazing place from when they first see it.
