Quang Binh (VNA) – As many as 110 outstanding overseas youths from 24 countries and territories worldwide offered incense and flowers to late General Vo Nguyen Giap in the central province of Quang Binh on July 15 as part of the Summer Camp 2016 programme.

They expressed their immense gratitude to the late General, whose name is closely linked with the historic victory in Dien Bien Phu in 1954, putting an end to French colonialism in the country.
They affirmed that they will tell their friends about the talented Vietnamese general and his final resting place after coming back to their host nations.

Attending the Summer Camp, titled “Young Vietnamese expats with national cultural heritage”, the youths have a chance to explore the country’s culture and history, further their understanding about national tangible and intangible cultural heritages and improve their Vietnamese.

Participants are set to pay homage to national heroes and tour many heritage sites such as the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long and Temple of Literature in Hanoi, Ha Long Bay in northern Quang Ninh province, Hue imperial city in central Thua Thien – Hue province and My Son Sanctuary in central Quang Nam province.

They will also engage in an exchange with students from the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam to discuss cultural preservation among overseas Vietnamese and the significance of seeking global recognition for Vietnamese tangible and intangible heritages.

The youngsters are scheduled to participate in charitable activities such as visiting and presenting gifts to Vietnamese heroic mothers in Thua Thien – Hue province, building book shelves for street children and growing trees at the coastal areas in Da Nang city.-VNA
