The UNESCO office in Vietnam, in conjunction with the Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture, opened an exhibition on the World Heritage Sites of Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam in the central city of Da Nang on March 28.

The event also draws the participation of the Angkor National Museum, Preah Vihear Eco-Global Museum, National Museum of Cambodia, and Preah Norodom Sihanouk Museum of Cambodia; and Vat Phou Site Museum of Laos.

Entitled “Our Common Heritage: Exploring World Heritage Sites of Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam”, the exhibition features six world heritages in Indochina, namely Angkor, Preah Vihear, Vat Phou, My Son, Thang Long Citadel and Ho Citadel.

As many as 22 panels highlighting images and writings on cultural heritage preservation activities are also on display at the event.

As part of the UNESCO/Japanese Funds-in-Trust project “Revitalising World Heritage Site Museums for a Better Interpretation of Living Heritage Sites in Cambodia , Laos and Vietnam”, the exhibition offers a chance for local people and foreign tourists to explore world heritage and the interconnection between the three countries, therefore raising their awareness of the global values of these sites.

Earlier this month, a similar exhibition took place in central Thanh Hoa province.-VNA
