The festival showcases the beauty of thousands of ornamental works, including ornamental bonsai, feng-shui gemstones, driftwoods and bonsai driftwoods. This is considered an important trade promotion activity to fostering the development of the capital’s agriculture, presenting great opportunity for producers, businesses and consumers in the sector to meet and seek for cooperation in the future.

In addition to the display and sale of these ornamental creatures, there are also many cultural and artistic performances held during the festival to celebrate the 13th National Party Congress.

According to Mr. Nguyen Van Chi, Deputy Chief of the Standing Office of the New Rural Coordination Office in Hanoi, Director of the Rural Development Sub-Department of Hanoi city, ornamental creatures are no longer purely a fancy hobby of the inhabitants of Hanoi today, but have also officially become a sector that contributes to promoting rural economic development.

The activities of the capital’s Ornamental Creatures Association in recent years have not only contributed directly to the process of restructuring the agricultural sector in the direction of enhancing added value and sustainable development, but also contributed positively in the construction of a new countryside and a civilized city in Hanoi.

Besides the famous traditional flower villages and concentrated flower cultivation areas, Hanoi is also the leading locality in developing tourism at the ornamental creature villages. Some renown names are Hong Van Ornamental Creatures Village in Hong Van commune, Thuong Tin district; Van Phuc flower market in Ha Dong district and Quang Ba flower market in Tay Ho district, among others.
