The civilisation of the Red River in the north and the country’s sea and islands have been depicted in a photo exhibition that is underway in Hanoi.

On display are 162 photos spotlighting the landscapes, people, life and culture in the Red River delta. They were chosen among the entries in a national photo contest “Discovering the Red River Civilisation”.

Meanwhile 153 other photos highlight the homeland’s sea and islands, especially activities of naval soldiers in the northern province of Quang Ninh and Hai Phong city.

The exhibition aims to help visitors gain deeper understanding of national sea and island sovereignty and their responsibility for defending it.-VNA
