Lang Co Festival to boost tourism, investment
The Lang Co Festival 2011 (the World's Beautiful Bay), will be held in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue on July 9-10, promoting both tourism and investment in the Lang Co-Chan May economic zone.
This year's festival will honour the cultural and ecology of the Lang Co-Chan May economic-tourist zone in terms of provincial socio-economic development, said Phan Tien Dung, director of the Thua Thien-Hue Culture, Sports and Tourism Department, adding that the bay, recently recognised as one of the World's Most Beautiful Bays by the Worldbays Club, has much to offer.
The festival will include exhibitions, cuisine, a fish spraying festival and a traditional rowing race amongst others.
Situated between Da Nang and Hue cities, Lang Co Bay, the Hai Van Pass, the Bach Ma Natural Reserve and an ancient fishing village present a wonderful glimpse of people living in harmony with nature.
Lang Co Bay consists of a 13km long beach with white sand and blue water, Lap An lagoon and around 1,500ha of rich natural resources.
From the bay, which lies adjacent to the Hai Van Pass, visitors can reach such World Cultural Heritage sites as Hue, Hoi An and My Son, all within a radius of 70km.
Concerts raise funds for needy children in central region
Two concerts by famous singers held next week in HCM City's Hoa Binh Theatre will raise funds for disadvantaged children in the central region.
Many famous singers including Dam Vinh Hung, My Tam, Anh Tuyet, Quang Dung, Ho Ngoc Ha and My Le will perform at the Buoc Chan Mien Trung (Central Regions' Footsteps) concert that will open at 2pm and 7pm next Saturday.
A special feature of the concerts is that all the participating artistes are natives of the region who began their careers in their birthplaces and moved to HCM City later.
Proceeds from the concerts will be donated to poor children in the provinces of Quang Tri, Thua Thien – Hue and Quang Nam as well as Da Nang City.
These localities suffer considerable damage each year from natural disasters.
