Up to 4,000 square sticky rice cakes symbolizing 4,000 years of Viet Nam’s national founding, locally known as Banh chung, are ready for the festive days.

These traditional cakes are indispensable offerings to honor the merit of the Kings Hung  who taught people to plant rice. The cakes also  remind people of Prince Lang Lieu who invented this kind of cakes.

Besides, many spectacular displays of music and dance will be held to depict the early history of Viet Nam .
