This is a new product that will be released to the public for the first time on this special occasion. 
From December 24, 2021 to January 2, 2022; the activity “Hội An farmers market” will be held on Nguyễn Phúc Chu street with handicrafts, OCOP products, recycled products, and unique handmade products; along with many other special activities such as “Lighting up Hội An Memories” on Hội An Memories Land, “Christmas and New Year Festival 2022” at Tân Thành fishing village, Wishing lantern tree, Lantern making, Calligraphy, Photo exhibition “To the heritage land”, etc.
