A tug-of-war in Hanoi

While there were full of motorcycles in the daytime, I saw streets around Hoan Kiem Lake turned into pedestrian zones on weekend nights. On that day, the young people played at a tug-of-war. Vietnamese tug-of-war game was added to UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2015, along with those of Cambodia, Korea and the Philippines.
