Exhibition to highlight Vietnam’s heritage and handicrafts to be held in December
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism informed that an exhibition honoring Vietnam’s cultural heritage and traditional handicrafts will be held in Ninh Binh province from 17 to 24 December 2021.
This is one of the activities in the Visit Vietnam Year 2021 event organized in Hoa Lu, Ninh Binh from April this year.
The exhibition aims to introduce historical relics and landscapes of Vietnam, promote cultural values, and affirm the cultural and tourism potential of localities and Vietnam in general.
Visitors have a chance to watch traditional handicraft products and artworks of artisans from famous handicraft villages such as Van Phuc silk or Dinh Cong Silver Carving (Hanoi); Phu Dieu pottery (Hai Phong); or Thanh Tien paper flowers (Thua Thien - Hue). This not only encourages artisans to maintain the handicraft work but also promotes tourism potential related to trade villages.
