The highlight of this year’s event was a showcase of stunning kites representing Vietnam’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos in the current context of China’s illegal deployment of the Haiyang Shiyou 981 oil rig in Vietnam’s waters since early May.

In 1999, the old town of Hoi An was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO for being a well-preserved example of a Southeast Asian trading port from the 15th to 19th centuries, and for containing buildings with a unique blend of local and foreign influences.
Since then, Hoi An has been voted one of the top tourist destinations in the world by several tourism magazines.
It was chosen as the world’s best tourism place by UK tourism magazine Wanderlust in Jan 2013.
