Can Ho
The Essential

Can Ho is home to the Tibetan-Burmese minority group of the Ha Ni. Its women wear a brightly coloured costume, with a long simple tunic worn over black trousers. The narrow sleeves are decorated with multi-coloured stripes, and their hair is worn in a cap adorned with colourful tassels. Coins are arranged in rows on the front of the tunic as well as in the headdress. Their houses, built over a beaten earth floor, are similar to those of the Hmong and are very basic in style.
