The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has proposed that the authorities at all levels carry out state management in compliance with the provisions of the law on cultural heritage to preserve and develop the Túy Loan rice paper village.

In Túy Loan, the craft of producing rice paper is rooted in the over 500-year history of exploration and settlement by the forefathers and passed down through many generations.

Túy Loan rice paper is made entirely by hand, mainly using rice flour and ingredients such as sesame, ginger and garlic, creating a unique flavour for the rice paper.

Túy Loan rice paper is familiar in the Central Region cuisine, and is especially served with Quảng noodles.

In the village, 15 households maintain and promote the traditional craft of making handmade rice paper. Every year during the Tết (Lunar New Year), Hòa Phong Commune has over 40 households participating in making rice paper to meet the demand of supplying rice paper to the market.

In recent years, a plan to revitalise artisan communities has been devised by Hòa Vang District, which offers advantageous financing to individuals and households who want to invest in making rice paper.

The local authorities aim to combine tourism and hands-on experiences in the village with the development and rehabilitation of craft communities.
