Phuan ethnic group revives long forgotten stupa festival
Xieng Khuang province is awash with development and is creating new tourist attractions in particular, most of which have historical and cultural connections.
The province’s Khoun district is the original home of the Phuan people and is famous for its prosperity in times gone by. But the district suffered great damage during the Indochina War, when many lives were lost and houses and other structures destroyed. The number of people of all ethnic groups who lost their lives during years of aerial bombardment cannot be counted.
