Enjoy the beauty of traditional Vietnamese culture at the famous historical site in the heart of the capital, Hanoi.

Thang Long-Hanoi Heritage Conservation Center holds the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival entitled "Shimmering Autumn Lights" at Thang Long Imperial Citadel.

The program recreates the Mid-Autumn Festival space of old Hanoi, which will last until October 1.

 The folk toys on display can help children and tourists learn about the uniqueness of Vietnamese culture, especially Hanoi.
The display areas are cleverly arranged to re-enact the look and feel of Hanoi in the early 19th century.
Various types of lost lantern models restored by cultural researcher Trinh Bach, artisans from the Old Quarter, Thanh Oai District in Hanoi and Bao Dap craft villages in northern Nam Dinh province are on display.

And the version of the cooked crab.
 These ancient lanterns were restored based on images and documents collected by foreign researchers such as Henri Oger, Albert Kant and Quai Branly Museum (France).

Many exquisite lantern models are restored, including this magnificent carp-shaped lantern.

These lanterns are made of bamboo and cellophane, mainly in red and yellow, the "lucky colors" according to Oriental beliefs.
 This iron ship is one of the most dreamed toys of boys during the Mid-Autumn Festival.

These days, Thang Long Imperial Citadel has become a popular photo destination for young people.
They are passionate about taking photos with unique mid-autumn lanterns in various shapes.
This once-a-year cultural event promises to create lasting memories for visitors to Hanoi in the fall.
