Students and kite enthusiasts in the central province of Thua Thien Hue are finishing 1,000 kites to fly at the Hue Festival early next month.
The kites will be taken to Hanoi later and flown in October, to mark the capital's 1,000th anniversary.
The flying will be organized by the Hue Kite Club and more than 200 students from Hue University of Arts.
While students make simple kites shaped like chickens or peacocks, artists from the club will make and fly more complicated bird kites like cranes and butterflies.
The kite flying journey will stop in Nghe An Province and Hoa Lu in the northern province of Ninh Binh, where Vietnam's capital was located before Hanoi.
The Hue Kite Club has attended dozens of kite flying and exhibition events across the country, including Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An, Nha Trang, Vung Tau, and the central provinces of Quang Nam, Quang Binh, Quang Tri and Binh Dinh, said club vice chairman Nguyen Dang Hoang.
Kite flying is an important part of Hue festivals. Kites from Hue have attended five festivals so far in France and Malaysia.
