The biennial Sea Festival 2011 will take place from June 11-15 in the resort beach town of Nha Trang in central Vietnam.

First held in 2003, this year’s festival features nearly 50 various cultural, art and sporting outdoor activities including Cau Ngu (Fish Worshipping) rite, fireworks display, wine, kite, lantern and carnival festivals.

The province's vice chairman and head of the organizing committee, Le Xuan Than, told Thanh Nien that the seminar and photo exhibition, and music show about Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago will be the highlight of this year's festival.

Sideline activities to be held in the days before the festival include music shows, a collective wedding, calligraphy showcase, food court and film week.

Many local and foreign artists from South Korea (RoK), China, France and Cuba will participate.

Than said that the Nha Trang government has requested the owners of hotels not to overcharge the customers more than 50% of regular price.

The Khanh Hoa Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism will send a team of surveyors to do spot checks on businesses to prevent price gouging. Those taking advantage of visitors will be heavily punished, according to officials.

The organizer expects the fifth Sea Festival will draw more than 100,000 visitors.

The activities are all free to the public.
