For historical and practical reasons these people continue to move between Guangxi and Vietnam today. Cross border marriage is common and alongside migrant workers and farmers crossing to sell their produce, constitutes the main reason for border crossing between Guangxi and Vietnam. This paper, through field research on the border area, tries to realistically present cross-border scenarios in the region and analyze the purpose and characteristics of current cross-border group behavior.
