Art shows are perfect for people who have creative minds. They enjoy it more than ordinary folks because they can understand what art is and how it works. We all know that art comes in different forms. They can come in the form of a movie, a traditional play, a gorgeous painting painted by professional artists, and even, music. To majority of the human beings in this world, attending art shows may be boring and nonsense to some but not to some countries in the world such as Vietnam. Just recently, the city of Saigon, or known as Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, has already launched a street show, or to some, an art show on the street, in the busy walking street of Nguyen Hue. In addition to this, there will be weekly performances on Saturdays and Sundays. These shows will enable a luxury hotel in Saigon to fill up rooms which can only be fully-booked on peak seasons.
For the month of May, 2017, the shows will run with a working theme: “Welcome to Ho Chi Minh City” which began May 13, 2017. According to the organizers of the shows, the street art shows will combine both traditional and modern forms of art. According to them, the stages will be featuring traits of the city such as the tour buses roaming around the city, vibrant parks and, the street food stalls where you can experience authentic Vietnamese cuisine. The city’s Department of Tourism is hoping that the street art show will become one of the newest main tourist attractions that can lure a big number of vacationists- both local and international tourists, who can easily fill up a luxury hotel in Saigon. In addition to this, the Department of Tourism of the city of Saigon is also inviting local and international performers to come to the city and perform during the art shows. This will also add up to the earnings of the Vietnamese tourism sector which earned 1.22 billion US dollars which is a 16% increase to what the sector earned in 2016.
