The festival, the biggest ever to be held in Scotland, will provide a great opportunity for the Vietnamese to promote their culture, identity and traditions to the Scots.
It will also be the highlight in a series of events and activities organized to mark the Việt Nam-UK diplomatic relations.
St.Andrew’s Square in the centre of Edinburgh will be packed with Vietnamese festivities and traditional music.
Images of Việt Nam, the charming country and hospitable people will be featured through fashion shows of designers Hoàng Hải and Lê Xuân.
Visitors will also have the chance to sample Vietnamese dishes and beer “Made in Việt Nam” as well as taking part in folk games with attractive gifts from Vietnam Airlines and other sponsors.
The festival will help Scottish people gain a better understanding about a country rich in culture and steeped in wonder and history.
It will even help boost tourism and attract Scottish visitors to Việt Nam, which is now widely considered a top Asian destination.
