Diwali - "Festival of Lights," one of India's biggest festivals, will be held in Hanoi on October 29.

The Diwali festival has become a popular cultural feature in the capital over the past several years, and has grown larger every year.

Last year, the festival welcomed more than 1,200 visitors from government officers, entrepreneurs, cultural agencies and the expat community in Hanoi.
