HÀ NỘI — The skies above Sa Huỳnh came alive with dancing kites as part of activities to celebrate the district receiving National Special Heritage Ranking - a highly regarded list of heritage acknowledged by the Ministry of Culture. The very first kite-flying activity took place on An Khê lagoon, the largest freshwater lagoon in Quảng Ngãi Province. This place is closely associated with Sa Huỳnh cultural heritage - an ancient civilisation that existed from around the 1st century BCE to the 3rd century CE in what is now central Việt Nam, Quảng Ngãi Province. "This is also an opportunity for a breakthrough in tourism in Sa Huỳnh cultural space - one of the three major civilisation centers in Việt Nam's metal age." Bùi Thị Ngọc, a resident of Quảng Ngãi City, said that the festival serves as a nostalgic journey that takes her back to her childhood, evoking fond memories of the time when she used to fly kites with her family and friends.
