The Paper Motorbike Factory for the Dead

Dong Ho village in Bac Ninh province, around 30km from Hanoi, which is famous for folk paintings, is very busy producing paper-made items, especially motorbikes, to serve the upcoming Ram Thang Gieng.

Besides motorbikes, Dong Ho villagers produce other things for the dead. A paper-made horse of 1.7m height is wholesaled at 200,000 dong at the village but it is up to one million dong at Hanoi’s Hang Ma street.
