Vietnam's diverse culture in spotlight at Seoul festival

2010-05-12 (GMT + 7)

Vietnamese songs, dishes, ao dai (traditional long dress) and palm-leaf conical hats were among the highlights that drew crowds at the Hi Seoul Festival 2010. Embassies of more than 40 countries in the Republic of Korea (RoK) joined in the Seoul Friendship Fair, which was organised on May 8-9 as part of the annual festival.

On display at three pavilions of Vietnam, co-hosted by the embassy and the trade mission, were a wide range of specialties, drinks, cultural products and handicraft items.
The Vietnamese Ambassador to the RoK, Tran Trong Toan, said Vietnam’s products showcased at the fair included handicraft and bamboo products, as well as potteries, porcelains, coffee, teas and photos and books introducing the country’s beauty spots.
Hanwol, a major importer and distributor of Vietnamese beers and alcohols in the RoK, also hosted a booth to promote Vietnam’s drinks.
An art troupe from the Hanoi Arts College entertained local audiences with special dances and songs, bringing them wonderful feelings of the diverse culture of Vietnam.
