Event Series Celebrates Hanoi’s Vibrant Cultural Heritage in the Old Quarter

NDO – A programme will be held from November 17 to 26 in the Hanoi Old Quarter to honour the capital city’s cultural heritages.


The Hanoi Old Quarter Culture Exchange Centre will be hosting its official opening ceremony on November 17th at 50 Dao Duy Tu Street. The highlight of this event will be a prestigious fashion show featuring the latest designs of the Ao Dai, the iconic Vietnamese traditional long dress. Renowned designers Do Trinh Hoai Nam and Lan Anh will present their creations during this showcase.

On November 18th, the centre has organized an exhibition to display the Vietnamese exam system, along with a dedicated seminar to explore the male version of the Ao Dai.

Located at 87 Ma May Street, Vietnam’s Heritage House aims to showcase Hanoi’s traditional tea culture during this event. Visitors will have the opportunity to interact with tea masters, enhancing their overall experience.

At Kim Ngan Temple, situated at 42-44 Hang Bac Street, attendees will have a unique chance to immerse themselves in two significant folklore musical art forms: “ca tru” (ceremonial singing) and “cheo” (traditional opera).

This carefully planned program, which coincides with Vietnam Cultural Day on November 23rd, showcases the Hanoi Old Quarter’s commitment to preserving and promoting its rich cultural heritage. It also aims to boost tourism within the city.
