2013 Sea Festival to kick off in Nha Trang

VietNamNet Bridge – Central Khanh Hoa Province’s Nha Trang City will host a four-day sea festival featuring various events from June 8 to 11.

The festival is held every two years by the Khanh Hoa Provincial People’s Committee to promote the local economic potential, culture, tourism, and sustainable development.

It aims to attract domestic and foreign investors and demonstrate Nha Trang’s capacity to host national, regional, and international events.

Its programme lists activities like an international tourism fair, a sea tourism investment promotion seminar, a tourism business awards ceremony, and an open golf tournament.

In addition, this year’s festival also includes folk games, a press award ceremony, special music and dance performances about the Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago, a human chess competition, an international women’s beach volleyball championship, a national beach handball tournament, a national water motorcycle exhibition, and motorbike and bicycle parades.
