DONG THAP (VNS) — The Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Dong Thap today will open a festival to celebrate Xeo Quyt's 20 years as a nationally recognised cultural and historic site.
The three-day festival at the Xeo Quyt historic site in Cao Lanh District will include a photo exhibition about Xeo Quyt and Dong Thap, as well as a goods fair and art performances.
Covering more than 70ha in My Hiep and My Long communes, Xeo Quyt was once a revolutionary base of the Party Committee of Kien Luong Province (now Dong Thap Province) during the resistance war against the US.
Xeo Quyt is now an attractive historical and ecological tourism site. The site has a zigzagging trench network and a 20-ha primitive cajeput forest. The site's quiet setting, birds, underground tunnels, shelters and historic houses are popular with tourists. — VNS
