NDO – A colourful arts programme was held at Tam Thanh square in Tam Ky district, Quang Nam province on June 14 to kickstart the Tam Ky Sea Tourism Festival 2019.

The opening ceremony entertained visitors with folk singing genres of Quang Ngai as well as charming melodies praising the land and people of the province through the performances of celebrated artists including Anh Tuyet, Thanh Lam, My Tam, and Ho Trung Dung.

A hive of activities is being staged at the four-day festival, including a painting exhibition, a drawing contest for children, a cuisine festival, folk games, and water sports.

The same day, a photo exhibition on Vietnam’s sea and island cultural and tourism heritages opened in the south-central province of Khanh Hoa as part of National Tourism Year 2019 themed “Nha Trang – Colour of the Sea”.

The exhibition displays over 200 photos, artefacts and maps featuring Vietnam’s Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos, Nguyen dynasty’s royal documents on Vietnam’s sovereignty over the two archipelagos, which assert the country’s sea and island sovereignty.

Works on display also include literary works, press and music pieces highlighting the beauty of Vietnamese seas and islands.

Local specialties and seafood are also on sale and music performances are being staged to cheer up visitors throughout the five-day exhibition.
