April 30, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can reveal that people who have booked Hanoi hotels during June should consider travelling to the central province of Thua Thien-Hue for the Hue Festival.

Held every two years, the event promises a wide range of cultural performances and activities during its nine-day run.

Kicking off on June 5th and continuing until June 13th, there is plenty of time for anyone visiting Vietnam to travel to Hue City and take in some of the performances.

Artists from approximately 30 different countries from around the world will be participating in this year's festivities.

Tourists can look forward to a whole host of shows, ranging from music and dancing to traditional Vietnamese rituals.
