The Vietnamese Embassy in the UK and Northern Ireland will hold a cultural festival in Edinburgh, Scotland, on September 7 to mark the 40th anniversary of Vietnam-UK diplomatic ties.
The festival, the biggest ever to be held in Scotland, will provide a great opportunity for the Vietnamese to promote their culture, identity and traditions to the Scots. It will also be the highlight in a series of events and activities organized to mark the Vietnam-UK diplomatic relations.
St.Andrew’s Square in the centre of Edinburgh will be packed with Vietnamese festivities and traditional music.
Images of Vietnam, the charming country and hospitable people will be featured through fashion shows of designers Hoang Hai and Le Xuan.
Visitors will also have the chance to sample Vietnamese dishes and beer “Made in Vietnam” as well as taking part in folk games with attractive gifts from Vietnam Airlines and other sponsors.
The festival will help Scottish people gain a better understanding about a country rich in culture and steeped in wonder and history. It will even help boost tourism and attract Scottish visitors to Vietnam, which is now widely considered a top Asian destination.
