A woman in bandanna and Áo Bà Ba
Until the time of Lord Nguyen Phuoc Khoat, a significant change occurred in the reform in dress. The Court assigned that Dang Trong residents had to dress like the Chinese, women wore pants but not skirts as people in Dang Ngoai in order to create the difference in clothes between the two regions.
Until now, basically, the way of dressing of the residents in Mekong Delta has had the unity with other regions in the country. But due to the terrain, the weather, the climate, residents in Mekong Delta has chosen for them the suitable characteristic outfits.
