The event is expected to contribute to the tourism recovery and development in the capital city, after more than two years affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as honouring the values of the traditional Ao Dai of the Vietnamese people.
Ao Dai performances will be held along Dinh Tien Hoang, Hang Khay, Trang Tien and Hang Bai Streets, in addition to an Ao Dai exhibition in the space of the Ly Thai To monument.
The festival's opening ceremony is expected to take place at 20:00 at Ba Kieu Temple, on December 2.
The festival will feature the tradition and history of Ao Dai in the three localities of Hanoi, Hue, and Ho Chi Minh City. It will also honour Vietnamese Ao Dai as an endless resource in tourism, a product combining traditional heritage, indigenous culture and modern creativity, as a symbol of Vietnamese women’s beauty and soul.
