Hai Phong Tourism Festival 2006 to kick off at Do Son

The Hai Phong Tourism Festival 2006 will kick off at Do Son beach town in the northern port city of Hai Phong, 100 km east of Hanoi, on April 21.

The festival aims to introduce and to promote the region's tourism potential as well as attract investment, according to Tran Trung Dung, Director of the city's Tourism Department.

 


On the opening day of the festival, a tourism and trade fair will open with the participation of tourism agencies and 150 enterprises. Various kinds of handicraft products made by the city's traditional villages, including bamboo products, embroidered paintings, and wood statues will be presented at the fair.

 


Hai Phong's tourism agencies will organise two new tour packages, including a Hai Phong-Kien Thuy-Do Son adventure tour and a field trip to the Tien Lang hot springs. Flights connecting Cat Bi Airport in Hai Phong city with Macau will be launched during the festival.

 


The Hai Phong Tourism Festival will also include various sport competitions, art and fashion performances and a forum entitled "Hai Phong's Tourism Development and Cooperation with Northern Key Economic Zones". A beauty contest will take place, and the winner will compete at the Miss Vietnam competition in August.

 


On May Day, the opening ceremony of the Memorial Monument of the Ho Chi Minh Sea Route will be organised at the town. Do Son is one of the starting points of the Ho Chi Minh Sea Route, Vietnam's clandestine water route used to supply the southern battlefield during the American War.

 


The region's Do Son Buffalo Fighting Festival will also be replicated during the tourism festival. Organised on August 9 of the lunar month, the annual traditional buffalo fighting festival has attracted thousands of tourists over the years.
