Etiquettes in the ancient palace

Thanh Uyen

The talk about the etiquettes in dressing and eating styles of the royal class in Vietnam will take place on October 17 at Hoa Sen University at No. 8 Nguyen Van Trang Street in HCMC’s District 1. The event named Etiquettes in the Ancient Palace is hosted by Cultural Community Discourse (CCD).

Researcher Trinh Bach will be the speaker of this program.  Left for the U.S. in 1972, he returned in 1995 and began the process of “digging”, researching about royal artifacts from historiography archived in museums, libraries, and families of royal descendants, to arm himself with the knowledge about heritage from the royal palace.

After that, he became one of the key players in archiving materials about cultural etiquettes (mostly clothing and cuisine) in the royal families, as well as preservation and restoration of the Nguyen dynasty’s artifacts.

Through the program, the host wishes to provide the audience with basic information on the types of royal traditional attires that the researcher has successfully restored, as well as the intersection between royal attires of China and Vietnam. 

Besides, the audience will get more information about royal dishes, the chefs that are specifically trained to serve the Emperor, how different dishes are used as offering in the royal palace, and examples of certain dishes. 

Languages used in this event are Vietnamese with English translation. The ticket price is VND150,000. The audience can book ticket at
