The 2022 Con Son - Kiep Bac Autumn Festival took place with its inherent scale and stature. Especially, the first Con Son - Kiep Bac Autumn Culture and Tourism Week lured a large number of locals and tourists. The festival alone welcomed about 60,000 arrivals, demonstrating its great pervasive power.
The dynamism and sensitivity of all-level authorities, especially leaders, have blown a breath of fresh air to lure a large number of visitors to Hai Duong, which is evidenced by three events held for the first time in the province.

The 31st SEA Games events in Hai Duong with many interesting activities associated with Thanh Ha lychee season also left an unforgettable impression on locals and visitors.
