Dong Xuan Market becomes a tourist site

QĐND – Thursday, September 16, 2010, 20:25 (GMT+7)

The Dong Xuan Joint Stock Company, in conjunction with Hoan Kiem District’s People’s Committee in Hanoi, is planning to launch a tour to explore old streets and go shopping at the Dong Xuan Market, as part of activities towards the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long–Hanoi, with an aim to attract more tourists to the city.

At present, the company is checking all stores for the quality and prices of goods as well as sellers’ behavior and attitude.

In addition, a large hall will also be built at the market to show short films about histories of Hanoi’s old quarters and the market.

Over the years, the market, one of the biggest in Hanoi, has become a place to preserve cultural values and helps reflect the life of the people in old-time Hanoi.

A seminar on the life and career of martyr and poet Le Anh Xuan was held by the Ho Chi Minh City Writers’ Association on August 17.

Poet Le Anh Xuan (L) and writer Anh Duc.

The meeting attracted many writers, poets, critics and poet lovers.

Le Anh Xuan, whose real name is Ca Le Hien, was born in a traditional cultural family with a revolutionary orientation in 1940. His father is Professor Ca Van Thinh.

He devoted all his short life for poetry and revolutionary. After graduating from the faculty of history, he was invited to teach at the university and selected to study abroad. However he chose the hardest way. He came back to the South and took part in the resistance war.

Critic Hoai Thanh said that Ca Le Hien is one of the excellent poets in the country.

Although he spent only 10 years in writing poetry, he left immortal works about the land and people to readers.

The martyr died in an attack by the American troops in 1968. He was granted the title of “Hero of the People’s Armed Forces”.
