HCMC – Saigon Tiep Thi, a publication of the Saigon Times Group, will collaborate with the Tourism Department of Thua Thien-Hue Province to organize a photo exhibition promoting the country’s heritage and tourism.
The “Heritage and You” exhibition will take place at the Song Huong (Perfume River) Theater in Hue City from November 18 to 20.
The exhibition will feature 50 photos, divided into three categories: Heritage and You – Together with Vietnam’s Tourism, Vietnam’s Impressions and Hue’s Identities.
The Vietnam’s Impressions category will introduce the winning photos of the “Top 7 Vietnam” photo contest held by Saigon Tiep Thi. The competition selected the most impressive attractions in Vietnam, including the top seven attractions with breathtaking sceneries, the top seven venues with beautiful city views at night, the top seven marvelous waterfalls, the top seven magnificent mountain passes and the top seven destinations with extravagant aerial views.
The Hue’s Identities category will enable visitors to learn about the traditional culture of Hue City, while the Heritage and You – Together with Vietnam’s Tourism category will feature photos of the country’s heritage sites that readers of Saigon Tiep Thi submitted from July to October 2021.
Through this exhibition, the government of Thua Thien Hue Province and Saigon Tiep Thi aim to honor cultural heritage and help the tourism sector recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.
The “Heritage and You” exhibition is part of the 22nd Vietnam Film Festival jointly organized by the Vietnam Cinema Department and the Culture and Sports Department of Thua Thien-Hue Province.
The photo exhibition is supported by Hyundai Thanh Cong Vietnam Auto Joint Venture Joint Stock Company.
