At the exhibition

On showcase are about 80 images and 50 exhibits and documents introducing Ly Son’s geological characteristics and history, along with locals’ daily life and their activities to protect the country’s maritime sovereignty.

Using the digital 3D technology, the exhibition also displays maps and documents on Vietnam’s Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes. The maps and documents are seen as historical and legal evidence proving Vietnamese sovereignty over the islands.

Vice Chairman of the district People’s Committee Le Van Ninh said the event aims to introduce Ly Son’s traditional cultural values, festivals and beautiful landscapes to both locals and foreign tourists.

In addition, it also proves Vietnam’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagoes as well as raises public awareness of protecting the national sovereignty over the islands, he added.

The exhibition and the Ly Son Culture-Tourism Week will run until July 2.
