Hue Festival gets ready to open tomorrow The Hue Festival 2010 will open at Ngo Mon Square in Hue City at 8 p.m. on June 10 with all preparations complete, according to the organizers. The festival themed Cultural Heritage with Integration and Development aims to mark the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi and promises visitors a colorful, animated ambiance with hundreds of outstanding cultural and tourism programs by many famous local and international arts troupes.

“Even with the hot weather, preparations for sound, light and stage systems are finished for the opening,” said Nguyen Duy Hien, Director of the Hue Festival Center. He added that two-to-four-star hotels and resorts were filling up and that bookings were expected to increase 80% during the festival.
