One of the most unique festivals in all Vietnam, the Đồ Sơn Buffalo Fighting Festival expresses the bravery, chivalry and risk-taking spirit of the residents of the northern city of Hai Phong. The festival has been held since the 18th century. Locals see buffalo fighting as an enjoyable pastime for the guardian gods of the area.
