The distinctive feature of this year’s festival, with the theme “Shining with the Wonder”, is the incorporation of musical art form that highlights the values of the World Natural Heritage of Ha Long Bay. 

Another special feature is the adaptation of Drone light technology combined with 3D mapping technology to depict the symbols of Ha Long and Quang Ninh.

First held in 2007, the annual event, set to promote the values of the world natural heritage of Ha Long Bay, has offered a familiar and favourite venue to both local residents and tourists.
