The 2015 Ao Dai Festival opened in Ho Chi Minh City on March 7 to honour the Vietnamese traditional dress.

The event is part of the city’s activities to promote and popularise the municipality’s tourism to local and international tourists. It is also among the programmes organised to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Liberation Day (April 30, 1975-2015).

The event drew the participation of over 40 businesses and esteemed designers.

In addition to an exhibition of the traditional dress throughout the eras and an Ao Dai show, the two-day event included painting and photo contests, a design competition, and talks with prominent Ao Dai designers.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Nguyen Thi Hong, Vice Chairwomen of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee, stressed that tourism is one of the city’s key economic sectors, contributing to the socio-economic development of the southern hub and the nation at large.

The city drew over 50,000 visitors when it hosted the event for the first time in 2014.

In response to the festival, themed “Ho Chi Minh City – the city of the Ao Dai”, all female staff in departments, agencies and companies operating in tourism will wear the traditional long dress from March 2 to 13.
