More than 220 children from Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia gathered together in an exchange programme, which started in Ho Chi Minh City on July 28.

During the four-day exchange, the children will tour a number of famous historical sites and tourist destinations in the city, and participate in a cultural and art performance.

The event aims to further tighten solidarity and friendship among the three Indochinese nations.

It is also expected to provide the children an insight into the culture, history and socio-economic development of Vietnam in general and Ho Chi Minh City in particular.

This is the third time the event has been organised in Ho Chi Minh City, offering a venue for kids in the city and their peers from Laos and Cambodia.-VNA
