Embroidery pictures help Quang Ninh fully tap tourism potential
Update: Oct 13, 2014
Hand embroidery pictures will be a new tourism product of northern Quang Ninh province, said Ha Quang Long, Director of the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

In addition to the province’s traditional tourism products such as landscapes, hand embroidery pictures are expected to become a specialty of Quang Ninh for both domestic and foreign visitors in the near future.

In an effort to honour the value of the traditional handicraft, a space was held on October 9 in Ha Long city to feature the royal embroidery art, showcasing hand embroidery pictures on Ha Long Bay and the land of Viet Nam, jewellery made of threads and vases with thread decorations.

This is part of a series of events to mark the 20th anniversary of UNESCO recognition of Ha Long Bay as a World Natural Heritage.

An exhibition on hand embroidery pictures will be held by the end of October.
