Creating new art spaces in Nha Trang

Khanh Hoa Provincial Department of Culture and Sports is taking steps to set up an investment project on sound and lighting system at the coastal park areas in Nha Trang City. This will be unique and modern art spaces and recreational places for local people and tourists in the city, especially at night.
 
Recreational places at night
 
Nha Trang is one of the favorite tourist attractions in Khanh Hoa and the country; therefore, it is necessary to organize activities and events to attract tourists to the city. However, in Nha Trang, currently, besides 2-4 Square and the city Conference Center (46 Tran Phu Street), there are few places of amusement and night recreational activities for local people and tourists. The two aforementioned places are the venues for Nha Trang Sea Festival, music and art programs held on the occasions of festivals, ceremonies, and Tet, etc. Apart from these occasions, these two places are just served as the venues for some night street art programs such as Tuong and folk song programs of the provincial Traditional Art Theater (three programs per week) and Bai Choi game of the provincial Center of Culture and Cinema (on weekends). These activities end at 8:30 pm.
