– A Cambodian cultural week began in Vietnam on November 8 in celebration of the two countries’ five-decade-old relations.

Lasting until November 12, the week features an exhibition introducing the land and people of Cambodia through photos, traditional costumes, Khmer kites and musical instruments.

As part of the event, artists from the Cambodian National Art Troupe will perform in Hanoi and Ha Long City in the northern province of Quang Ninh.

Cambodia is home to UNESCO-recognised Angkor, one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia, Preah Vihear Temple, the Sambo Prei Kok archaeological site and Khmer dance.

In 2016, Cambodia welcomed more than five million international tourists, including nearly 960,000 from Vietnam.-VNA
