More than 400 stalls will be set up to present tourism programmes, culinary culture and products of traditional craft villages of Hanoi and Red River Delta provinces during a festival in the capital city from October 9–12.
Visitors have the chance to observe artisans at work and try their hand at making some products.
Several forms of folk culture like water puppetry, calligraphy and “ca tru” singing will also be introduced along with tours around craft villages in Hanoi.
Apart from these activities, the Hanoi city People’s Committee will discuss measures to develop craft village tourism in Hanoi with participating scientists, artisans, travel agencies and representatives of international organisations.
As part of the 2013 National Tourism Year of the Red River Delta–Hai Phong, the event aims to honour, conserve and develop traditional craft villages in the region.
