A raft of ebullient activities were held at the 2015 International Summer Camp, organised in the northern province of Thai Nguyen on June 21 as part of activities to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the normalisation of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and the US.

Numerous students from the US, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam joined activities to introduce Vietnamese culture and people, such as pitching camp in the unique style of each nation and playing Vietnamese traditional games and masquerades.

The highlight of the cultural party was the exchange between students from Thai Nguyen province and Thao & Get Down Stay Down band, a San Francisco, California-based folk rock music group.

The four-member band, including a Vietnamese- American- Thao Nguyen, a vocalist and guitar player, treated the audience to 12 audacious songs from the album “We the Common”.

The event also featured brilliant performances by foreign students.

The event left great impression on the participants, helping foster the friendship, solidarity and cooperation between Vietnam and the US.

On the occasion, students visited famous destinations in Thai Nguyen province such as the Nui Coc Lake tourism site and the Museum of Vietnam’s Ethnic Cultures.-VNA
