The event is designed to provide visitors an overview on Vietnam’s seas and islands throughout historical periods through a number of documents, ancient maps, records of the Nguyen Dynasty affirming Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Truong Sa (Spratly) and Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelagos. 

Also on display are ancient items featuring the country’s sea and island culture as well as festival costumes and working tools of people in coastal regions, helping visitors gain a better understanding about the life of fishermen. 

In addition, cultural heritages, sea and island tourism, folk performances and sea products of coastal localities are displayed at the exhibition, jointly held by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the provincial People’s Committees of Quang Nam and central coastal localities. 

The event, which runs through June 14, also provides an opportunity for localities to accelerate cultural exchanges and share experience in managing cultural activities, while promoting Vietnam’s cultural values as well as sea and island tourism potential.
