The Saigon Times Daily

Nha Trang-Khanh Hoa Sea Festival 2017 kicked off last Saturday at April 2 Square along Tran Phu Street in the central coast city of Nha Trang, featuring a wide range of cultural activities, art performances, sports and tourism promotion, according to local media. 

This year’s event themed “Welcoming friends with open arms” attracted the participation of Srtate leaders and representatives of State agencies, and tens of thousands of local and international tourists on the opening night of the 8th sea festival.     

The four-day event, which wraps up today, includes some 50 festivities, cultural and sport activities and seminars on traditional and modern values of Nha Trang City, which is known for the bay of the same name, one of the world’s 30 most beautiful bays.

The highlights of the event comprise Khanh Hoa bird’s nest festival, a street festival, a traditional cuisine contest, folk games and sport activities such as swimming, beach volleyball and beach soccer.

Local art groups also introduce typical art performances of various regions in Vietnam to domestic and foreign visitors. In addition, many international art troupes from Spain, France, South Korea, Australia and Russia also perform at the event.

Held for the first time in 2003, the biennial festival is intended to promote the beauty of Nha Trang Bay and introduce rich cultural values of the country to international friends.
