There are many minorities living in the central and north of Vietnam. Among them, the Hmongs are the more populous; however there are also a sizeable populations of others such as Red Zaos in and around Sapa. Most of them are still farmers though tourism has opened up economic opportunities for them (also see this article). Life in the farm is still pretty simple for them; and most of them still like it that way. Well, at least one can learn to ride a buffalo at a very young age.
