These activities aim to preserve and promote the community's love of culture. They are a playground for creative cultural experiences that allow local people and foreign tourists to gain knowledge and experience Hanoi's traditions throughout thousands of years of culture. These activities honour the Vietnamese people's long-standing cultural symbols and encourage the younger generation to preserve and promote culture by inheriting and creating contemporary cultural activities from traditional heritage.
