Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort puts on third Kite Competition
The Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort and Spa has announced that the Third Annual Kite Flying Competition will take place on May 19 at Cua Dai Beach, on the outskirts of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed ancient town.
The four-star resort is organizing the annual event in cooperation with Hoi An's Sports & Culture Department and Tourism & Commercial Department to promote tourism and culture of the ancient town in the central province of Quang Nam Vietnam.
Every year the Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort and Spa organizes the fun kite competition in May, which is a good time for kite flying, the resort's general manager Claude Balland said.
Tourists from the Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort and Spa and other nearby resorts will see kites of all sizes, types and colors soar high in the sky, and can give their support to the competitors. The fun event will start at 1.30pm.
The resort has pledged nearly VND50mil worth of prizes for the winners of the competition, which is expected to attract 70 local and expatriate participants from Hoi An, Da Nang and neighboring localities.
The organizers will give out a first prize of VND5mil, two second prizes of VND3mil each, three third prizes of VND2mil each and five consolation prizes of VND500,000 each.
The organizers will also pay transportation expenses of VND100,000 for competitors from Hoi An and Da Nang, and VND300,000 for those living far from the ancient town.
Hoi An is said to have been the crossroads of South-East Asian sea trade from the 15th to 19th centuries. Today its quaint blend of indigenous architecture of Vietnam, China and other nations is preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage site, with the town center thriving as a popular tourist destination complete with trendy sidewalk cafes, bars and restaurants.
