The event, which is part of a range of activities held to mark National Cultural Heritage Day, on November 23 aims to honour the values of unique cultural heritages from across the country.

The festival is due to feature a variety of interesting activities for guests to enjoy, with notable parts of the occasion including an exhibition displaying 181 beautiful photos on the history, culture, tangible, and intangible heritages of the nation’s stunning range of landscapes, in addition to the daily life of Vietnamese people.

The images set to go on show at the function will be selected from the ninth photo contest on heritage and tourism launched by the Vietnam Heritage magazine.

Furthermore, the venue will see the Vietnam National Museum of Nature introduce roughly 35 photos on Vietnamese nature. Images will include the Dong Van stone plateau in Ha Giang province and Son Doong cave in Quang Binh province that were captured by local scientists and photographers from the Natural History Museum of the University of Florence in Italy over the past 20 years.

Moreover, a special area will be set up to allow provinces and cities nationwide to showcase their photos on aspects of cultural heritage, their region’s most popular sightseeing spots, and various products from a variety of craft villages.

A number of art performances will take place throughout the event in order to honour UNESCO-recognised cultural heritages such as gong performances from the Central Highlands region’s ethnic groups and Then singing by the locals from Cao Bang province.
