Visitors will flocks to historic Van Loc Temple and the beaches and ocean bordering Cua Lo, while sporting events like boat racing and folk games will be held on Xuan Huong Beach.

New Vietnam tours have sprung up alongside this year's festival, giving visitors a chance to explore history and a broader swathe of land by way of trips to the homes of President Ho Chi Minh and renowned poet Nguyen Du.
"The festival will tighten the State policy on tourism management so that the coastal town can be developed into an attractive destination for tourists with a fresh, clean, prosperous, civilised and sustainable environment," said Le Minh Thong, chairman of Cua Lo's People Committee.
Multi-province eco-tours, cultural tours and inter-regional tours to Laos are also new additions.
Organisers expect this year's festival will play an important role in drawing more tourists to the province.
