UNESCO- recognised Angkor Wat temple complex, a famous tourist attraction in Cambodia
The cultural week, jointly held by the Vietnam’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Cambodian Minister of Culture and Fine Arts, is also among the events to mark the 50th anniversary since the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries.
Prominent among them is an exhibition scheduled at the Vietnam Centre for Exhibition, Culture and Arts, introducing the natural landscapes and people, as well as UNESCO-recognised tangible and intangible cultural heritages of Cambodia, including the Temple of Angkor Wat, Temple of Preah Vihear, and the Sambor Prei Kuk archaeological site.
The works on display will also include artworks, Cambodian traditional costumes, various types of kites and musical instruments, and paintings illustrating the achievements of four localities: Phnom Penh, Siam Reap, Battambang province, and Sihanoukville city.
As part of the programme, artists from the Cambodian National Art Troupe will deliver performances at the Hanoi Opera House and in the coastal city of Ha Long in Quang Ninh province.
