A delegation of 160 Vietnamese expats arrived in Hue, an ASEAN City of Culture on July 21 as part of their 2015 Summer Camp Vietnam.

They explored Khai Dinh royal tomb, Thien Mu pagoda – the oldest in Hue, and the Imperial Citadel with over 100 unique sites within the Complex of Hue Monuments recognised as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 1993.

The trip gave them insight into the local culture and history as well as the roots of Vietnamese culture.

Held annually by the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs, this year’s Vietnam Summer Camp themed “Proud of Vietnam” runs from July 13-31, taking participants to major landmarks from the north to the south of the nation.
