Meanwhile, the organization in Tho Quang ward (Son Tra district) had a parade with women wearing ao dai while riding bicyles.

Hoang Thi Thu Huong, Chairwoman of the Da Nang Women's Union said: "Ao dai is the symbol and pride of Vietnamese people, the soul and characteristic of the nation. It demonstrates values of truth, goodness, and beauty. For international guests, whenever they see ao dai, they think of Vietnamese people, women, and culture."

Ao Dai Week is held t the beginning of March every year. The event is among the annual activities launched nationwide by the Vietnam Women's Union to raise the community's awareness and pride in the history and values of the Vietnamese ao dai.

The event is positively received by women across the country, building a joyful and exciting atmosphere, contributing to preserving and promoting Vietnamese cultural specialties.

As the week begins, although many provinces are affected by the pandemic, many women still wear ao dai to work or take photos with the costume for their social media posts.
