The site is decorated and lit with over 300 lanterns, which evoke the image of Vietnamese port town Hoi An. Food stalls and variety stores are set up to present Vietnamese goods and food such as rice noodle pho and spring rolls. Vietnamese culture is introduced with Ao Dai –Vietnamese traditional clothing – fashion show and its try-on session and Vietnamese folk music concerts.
