Hanoi Museum and the Thang Long Antique Association have worked together to organise a bazaar every Sunday for the trading of second hand handicraft and fine art articles as well as antiques.

The bazaar will feature around 40 booths following the style of a traditional rural market in the Red River Delta.

The organisers will keep a close watch of goods put on sale to prevent fake and illegal goods. They will also provide visitors with consultation and help at their request.

Performances of folk music will be staged at the site besides displays of bonsai and ornamental plants to entertain visitors.

The municipal department of culture, sports and tourism hopes the bazaar will become a popular destination for visitors to Hanoi.-VNA
