A display of artifacts linking the histories of Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam opened in the central city of Da Nang March 28.

Entitled "Our Common Heritage: Exploring the World Heritage Sites of Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam", the exhibition is the result of cooperation between nine site museums in connection to six World Heritage sites: Angkor Wat and Preah Vihear in Cambodia, Vat Phou in Laos, My Son Santuary, Ho Citadel and Thang Long Citadel in Vietnam.

On display are items, photos, documents, and 22 panels about the cultures, peoples, histories, and landscapes of the three countries.

Through the two sections titled Nature and Myth and Trade and Exchange, the exhibition highlights the sites' interaction with landscapes and cultures of Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, as well as the history of trade among the three neighboring nations.

Co-organized by the UNESCO office in Vietnam and the Cham Sculpture Museum, the exhibition will last until March next year. Along with several other events, it marks the 40th year of the World Heritage Convention (1972-2012).
