    Vietnamese colure has evolved on the basis of the rice culture. Thus, the lifestyle of the Vietnamese population is closely related to the village and native land.

     In Vietnamese society, people have gathered together to form villages in rural areas and gulled in urban areas since the dawn of the nation. These organizations have gradually developed so that the population is more stable and closer together.

     Each village and guild its own regulations called conventions. These conventions vary from each village and guild, but they are always in accordance with state laws and they ensure the promotion of good customs within its population.

     Approximately ten thousand of such conventions are kept in the Viet Nam History Museum in Ha Noi and in other museums throughout the country.
