Earlier, the Yen Bai authorities announced at a press conference in Hanoi that it would organize a 5,000-strong performance of the traditional dance of Thai ethnic group at the opening ceremony of Muong Lo Culture and Tourism Festival on September 20, and apply for a Guinness World Record.

Tuan said, however, that after considering requirements and conditions set by the Guinness World Records, the provincial authorities decided to give up on the application.
