‘Truong Sa in My Heart’ is a new calendar for 2019, launched recently on HCM City’s Book Street. The calendar is the brainchild of Ho Chi Minh City’s General Publishers and Xuan Phuong Nam Calendar Company, aiming to promote the landscapes and people of Vietnam’s islands and sea.


The calendar is a 52 page celebration of Vietnam’s rich culture, decorated with images of the southern islands, along with the lives of soldiers and residents of Trường Sa (Paracel Archipelago).

The photos for the calendar were taken by famed photographer Nguyen A, as well as some featured photography from the soldiers working on the islands.

The publication is expected to highlight the life of those living on the island to those living on the mainland, instilling national pride and encouraging the soldiers who guard the country’s sovereignty.-VNA
