The Ao dai performance also contributes to promoting a safe and attractive Hoi An post-Covid-19. Each year, Hoi An welcomes about 5 million visitors. In 2020, due to the impacts of the Covid-19 epidemic, the number of tourists sharply declined, forcing a series of businesses to close.
Near the Bridge Pagoda, the crowds gather to enjoy the performances of innovative and traditional ao dai.

At An Hoi Bridge, the models performed 20 ao dai collections, featuring the 1930s style and made of Vietnamese silk.
To welcome visitors to Hoi An in 2021, the ancient town is adorned with many lanterns and flowers across streets and alleys. Besides, it will host interesting folk games and light shows.
