Hue Festival to be held next April

The Hue Festival 2012 will be held next April in the central province of Thua Thien Hue.

Under the theme ‘Cultural Heritage with Integration and Development- Rendezvous of Historical Cities’, the festival, the seventh of its kind, will be a spotlight of the National Tourism Year 2012, which will also be hosted by the province.

The festival, slated for next April 7-15, aims to realise a government decision on making Hue a Vietnam’s festival city and to affirm Thua Thien Hue to be one of Vietnam’s unique culture-tourism centres.

Along with traditional festivals, a new festival to preserve and promote Hue cultural heritage values will be held during the event.

According to the Thua Thien Hue authorities, focus will be placed on enhancing the quality of festive programmes and promoting the province’s image.
