Following the success of Halong Carnival 2011, the 2012 season will continue to place strong emphasis on cultural exchange and heritage preservation. Participants from Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Hai Phong, Bac Ninh and other countries such as South Korea, Russia, Mongolia and Thailand, to name a few, will surely make the event a sparkling one. The main event will be on April 28 at Bai Chay beach, with 3000 artists performing.
