Art troupes from 20 countries throughout the world are scheduled to perform at the Hue Festival 2020 which is due to be held from April 1 to 6 in the imperial city of Hue.
Running with the theme of “Cultural Heritage with Integration and Development”, the festival’s 11th edition aims to promote cultural exchanges with other countries as well as the image of Hue as a tourist destination to international visitors.
