NDO - The Singapore Tourism Board and the Singaporean Embassy in Vietnam organised the Singapore Festival 2019, the first of its kind, at the pedestrian street around Hoan Kiem Lake, right in the heart of Hanoi. The festival took place on March 23 and 24, with various activities like fashion shows, installation art, music performances and street food. The event contributed to bringing Singapore closer to the people of Hanoi and help Vietnamese get a better understanding of the unique experiences found only in Singapore.
