An exhibition featuring photos on Vietnam’s traditional cultural festivals is being held in the northern city of Hai Phong from January 22 to February 6.
The event is one of activities to celebrate the Lunar New Year 2014 and the 84 th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (Feb. 3).

130 photos on display provide a multi-dimensional and multi-colour reflection of the nature, land and people of Vietnam and the traditional cultural identities of the Vietnamese ethnic groups.

They help visitors better their understanding about the country's costumes, community-based cultural activities, religious rituals and beliefs, customs, folk games and festivals, traditional arts, and UNESCO-recognised tangible and intangible cultural heritages.

The exhibition also showcases images and documents on the ancient architecture of Hai Phong as well as the formation and development of the port city.-VNA
