A wide range of activities will be launched on 70 Nguyen Du street on December 30 to welcome the New Year 2019.
Three major events will take place, including a photo exhibition, a culinary festival and a book launch. On display at the exhibition will be over 250 paintings from a group named the Urban Sketcher Hanoi, who wish to preserve and conserve traditions of significant cultural value.
The artwork includes some of the most outstanding pieces in the field of fine arts, painting and architecture and have all been selected by experts.
In addition, visitors will have the chance to experience cuisine featuring a wide range of traditional Hanoian dishes. Moreover, the organizing board will also launch a book of old areas in downtown Hanoi that depict their transformation into modern, urban areas.
Pham Thi Bich Hanh, a representative from the organizing board, said these events will provide visitors with an insight in the past of Hanoi and also into how life is in the city nowadays.
The events will run through until January 31.
