HA NOI (Biz Hub) — A festival to honour the rice civilisation culture in Asia will take place at Asia Park in the central Da Nang City from January 29 to February 20.

A representative of the festival organiser Sungroup said visitors would get to see live demonstrations of all phases of rice cultivation, from the sowing to the harvesting processes, adding that the festival would show technical innovations in cultivation in Viet Nam, which is now the world's second-largest rice exporter.

Visitors will also enjoy several cultural activities and art programmes from many Asian countries, such as Japanese drum performances, walking on stilts, street music and shadow puppetry, as well as violin performances, flash mob dance and Asian street cuisine from February 8 to 14 (Lunar New Year). Vietnamese folk games will also be showcased.

Indian artists will perform the Manipuri folk dance from February 11 to 13, while local models and artists will participate in a fashion show on February 20.

According to the organiser, Asia Park will be one of the best holiday destinations, with its sparkling and colourful decorations. — VNS
