Hanoi Lotus Festival will take place at the Cultural and Creative Space in Tay Ho district in Hanoi from July 12 to 16 to promote lotus, lotus products and One Commune-One Product (OCOP) products from the city and northern mountainous provinces.

Tay Ho district will inaugurate a centre for OCOP product introduction and sale.

The festival will feature lotus bulbs, silk, sweet soup, sticky rice, sausage, decorative products, and handicrafts.

It will provide an attractive and unique experience for local and tourists, reaffirming the value of the lotus in the cultural and spiritual life of Vietnamese people in general and Hanoi in particular, as well as the potential of lotus in the economic development.

Diverse activities such as a lotus installation art space, an exhibition of lotus photos in the Vietnamese life, a promotion programme for Tay Ho district’s tourism, a music night featuring works by Vietnamese popular composer Trinh Cong Son, a workshop on the conservation and development of Vietnamese lotus  and a cycling event, will be held during the festival.

West Lake lotus is very famous, attracting thousands of people to take picture and enjoy tea when it's in full bloom. In preparation for the Lotus Festival, pond owners have made lotus tea and mut sen (sugar-coated lotus seeds) and arranged tea treats./.
