The Green Heritage Culture Tourism Week will take place in Hanoi from November 21 to 23.

Under the theme “The Convergence of Humans and Nature”, the Week is being held at the Vietnam Exhibition Centre for Culture and Arts at 2 Hoa Lu Street in a cooperative effort between the center and the departments of culture, sports, and tourism in many cities and provinces nationwide.

Its holding is to celebrate Vietnam Heritage Day on November 23 and to preserve and promote Vietnam’s natural and cultural heritage. It is also a chance to raise awareness and enhance the role of the community in biodiversity conservation, natural environment protection, and climate change mitigation.

Vietnamese heritages will be introduced, in particular those recognized by UNESCO as world natural heritages. Local exhibitors will advertise the cultural and tourism potential of the world natural heritages and share their experience in preserving natural heritage values in different regions around the country.

There will also be an exhibition themed “Impressions of Vietnamese Natural Heritage Sites”, showcasing tourism products, installation art, and craftsmen plying their trade in different villages. Natural heritages will be introduced, such as Ha Long Bay (Quang Ninh province), Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park (Quang Binh province), Trang An Landscape Complex (Ninh Binh province), Cat Tien National Park (Dong Nai province), Cat Ba Biosphere Reserve (Hai Phong city), Hoang Lien National Park (Lao Cai province), and Ba Be National Park (Bac Kan province), among others.

One hundred of the best photos from the Vietnam Heritage Photo Contest 2017 will be displayed. The photos were selected from 3,479 entries (single photos or albums) submitted by 66 photographers nationwide, focusing on five topics: markets, nature, intangible cultural heritages, tangible cultural heritages, and life. They captured wonderful moments from nature and life, customs, festivals, as well as architectural structures. Markets was one of the main topics as Vietnam has more than 8,000 of various sizes and types.

Diverse art and cultural activities will take place, such as traditional ca tru singing, con ca tai tu (southern amateur singing), and chau van (spiritual singing). A cultural exchange program for students and a painting festival for kids will also be held.

There is also a painting festival entitled “Children with Natural Heritage” and a Vietnamese cuisine area.
