Rural culture has impacted in the process of modernization. With the growing strength of modernization, traditional village culture has been subject to negative pressures such as environmental damage, population loss, and obstruction of sustainable development patterns. This paper takes Yim Tin Tsz village in Sai Kung, Hong Kong, as an example. It discusses the innovation of village culture construction from the perspective of the original construction of village culture, and tries to discuss the concepts and initiatives of the actual construction of traditional village culture through analyses of related literature and field research. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the problems that exist in the construction of cultural authenticity in Yantian Zi village in Saigon and based on this, to propose ways of construction in the dimensions of the government, community managers, and individuals, in an attempt to provide valuable inspirations and suggestions for the inheritance and renovation of village culture.
