Hue city to become capital of Ao Dai

Thua Thien – Hue Provincial People’s Committee has approved the project entitled “Hue – The capital of Ao Dai” to affirm the value and position of Hue’s Ao Dai (Vietnamese traditional long dress) in the culture of the ancient capital and the country.

The project has set out many specific goals such as the encouragement of gradually developing Hue’s Ao Dai into a traditional dress for cultural exchanges, ritual activities, and traditional festivals; and the organisation of Hue Ao Dai Festival as a biennial series of community cultural events.

Under the project, Hue city to become capital of Ao Dai will also develop a dossier to submit to the UNESCO for recognition of Ao dai as Intangible Cultural Heritage of the Humanity.

For 300 years now, the ao dai has long been Vietnam’s traditional outfit and a typical cultural characteristic of the country. It has constantly changed throughout the ups and downs of history but still possesses its traditional values, contributing to the elegance and charm of Vietnamese women.
