The Hue Festival, held every two years, is a week-long event honouring the culture and history of Hue, the former capital of Vietnam.
The festival begins with a grand opening ceremony involving art and performances by home-grown talent and international artists. Festivities continue throughout the week, comprising poetry, street art performances, boat races, art exhibitions, drumming and historical films. There is also a kite day, when the traditional kites that Hue is famous for are paraded through the streets. All this is accompanied by a variety of traditional street food stalls, high spirits and plenty of music and dancing.
Hue Festival is a fantastic way to learn about both the modern and historical culture of Vietnam.
When to go: The Hue Festival happens every two years, usually in spring.
