Hà Nội authorities will organise numerous vibrant and appealing culture activities to attract visitors to the capital city during the 2024 Lunar New Year (Tết) holiday. This is part of efforts to preserve and promote traditional cultural values, and utilise culture as a motivation for economic development, especially in the tourism industry.
Many activities and events will be held over an extended duration, offering opportunities for tourists to experience the traditional Tết atmosphere in the Hồng (Red) River Delta region, including a painting exhibition at the Temple of Literature — the first university in Việt Nam.
Notably, a drone light show expected to set a Southeast Asian record is scheduled to take place by the side of West Lake in Hà Nội on the eve of the Year of the Dragon on February 9. The event is set to feature the largest number of drones for such a performance in Southeast Asia, to be accompanied with exclusively composed music and screens for live broadcasting.
In the first lunar month, the municipal Department of Tourism will collaborate with relevant units to hold tourism promotion activities, towards stipulating tourism demand in 2024.
