This is the second time the festival has been organized by the Department of Tourism and the Hanoi Women's Union.
The organizing committee hopes to make the Vietnamese traditional Ao Dai become a “tourism ambassador”, and the annual event of the Hanoi Ao Dai Tourism Festival become a typical tourism product of Hanoi’s tourism industry.
The cultural event also aims to commemorate major holidays in 2023, especially the 69th anniversary of the Capital's Liberation Day.
The 2023 Hanoi Ao Dai Tourism Festival took place from October 27 to 29, featuring a series of cultural activities to promote the beautiful image of Hanoi and praise the Vietnamese traditional Ao dai.
The opening ceremony of the event was professionally staged with the participation of many famous artists, including violinist Dao Quang Huy. The young artist has won capital music awards and performed at several large national art shows.

The art-music night titled "Colors of Hanoi" took place on October 28 at 8 pm, with Hanoi-themed songs performed by famous singers such as Ha Le, Bao Tram, Nguyen Ngoc Anh and others.
