The Hanoitimes - On March 18, about 300 delegates, who are government officials and representatives of diplomatic missions and international organisations in Vietnam, visited Tay Phuong Pagoda, a special relic site in Hanoi, as part of a friendship spring tour.
The event was jointly held by the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations, Hanoi Department of Tourism and Thach That district People’s Committee.

According to Nguyen Lan Huong, Chairwoman of the Hanoi Union of Friendship Organisations (HUFO), the tour is organised annually to introduce Vietnam’s historic relic sites and tourist attractions to international friends. It helps promote exchanges and mutual understanding between Vietnam and foreign countries, Huong highlighted.

On behalf of the international delegates, Saddi Salama, Palestinian Ambassador to Vietnam, spoke highly of HUFO’s initiatives for organising activities pushing solidarity and cooperation between Vietnam and other nations. The trip ended with a show of ao dai (traditional long tunic) and dancing and singing performance.
