A series of cultural activities will be held in Hanoi’s Old Quarter and the mural space on Phung Hung Street from October 5 to 7.

The event is co-organized by the Hanoi Old Quarter Management Board, A Designer Fashion Academy-Hanoi, and artisans from craft villages, to celebrate the capital’s Liberation Day (October 10, 1954).

The highlight of the event will be a fashion show entitled “Hanoi’s Autumn Colour” and live music performances on Phung Hung Street in Hoan Kiem district. The show will feature the latest designs from famous local designers such as Trinh Fashion, Adesigner, Thao Oliver, Camelia Fashion, Myana, D.Khang, Caroll Tran, Yen Phi Designer, A&C Media, and Azalea. Visitors can also join in interesting activities such as makeup, hairstyling, and photo shooting with costumes from the collections.

Traditional music and folk games and making “to he”, a traditional toy for children in Vietnam made from glutinous rice powder in the form of edible figurines such as animals, flowers or characters in folk stories, will also be organized.

There will also be a program on Vietnam’s traditional craft villages on October 9 and 10 at Kim Ngan Temple (42-44 Hang Bac St., Hoan Kiem district), where visitors can gain insight about carving and jewelry and meet with artisans from craft villages.

These cultural activities also aim to promote the value of heritage and heighten public responsibility for preserving heritages and boosting tourism development.

Hanoi welcomed nearly 20 million holidaymakers in the first nine months of 2018, including over 4.3 million foreign visitors, a 9.2 per cent and 20 per cent increase, respectively, against the same period last year, according to the Hanoi Department of Tourism.
