Update: Nov 13, 2015
The first “Memory of Ha Noi” event, to be held at the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long from December 30, 2015 - January 4, 2016, will bring back to life the images and culture of the ancient capital city, according to the municipal Department of Tourism (DoT). 

The event, co-hosted by the DoT and the Centre for Thang Long - Ha Noi Heritage Conservation, will feature art installations recreating the space of the Old Quarter, old villages and houses in the city, alongside displays of traditional handicrafts and costumes. 

A space dedicated to the culture of Hanoians will be modeled on an ancient house surrounded by fences, flowers and greenery. Its interior is for worshipping and tea drinking, a spiritual tradition and cultural pastime still valued by Hanoians today. 

A flea market will showcase items dating back as far as one hundred years ago. 

A number of music performances are also planned during the event.
