Vietnam Pavilion


Vietnam Pavilion

THEME: 1000-Year History of Hanoi

PAVILION: The façade of the 1,000-square meter Pavilion appears like a river and the bamboo surrounding it can reduce the heat from the sun. The design highlights Vietnamese culture. The bamboo used as construction materials will be recycled after the Expo. They will be reused for social welfare facilities and rebuilding schools.

EXHIBIT: Visitors will learn about the country’s profound history and culture as well as its wisdom in eco-protection and urban development. Hanoi, also known as Thang Long in history, is celebrating its 1,000th anniversary in 2010. The Pavilion will host some Vietnamese performances and music for the occasion. The interior of the Pavilion utilizes dozens of bamboo columns to represent the forests and jungles of Vietnam. Light strings hanging from the ceiling represent the rain that sustains these forests. A pond in front of the central stage offers serenity with lotus blossoms and leaves giving fragrance to the Pavilion. There are exhibits of Vietnamese musical instruments as well as of pottery from the ancient Ly and Tran dynasties of Vietnam.

CUISINE: There is no dining area listed for the Pavilion.

SHOPPING: There is no specific shopping facility listed for the Pavilion.
