One hundred and fifty young Vietnamese expatriates from 30 countries and territories began an annual summer camp in Hanoi on Friday.
This year's Vietnam Summer Camp will take the participants on a tour throughout Vietnam and stop at national historical and cultural monuments like Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum in Hanoi, and the Hung King temple in the northern province of Phu Tho.
During their visit, the young campers will also participate in cultural exchange activities with youth in the central province of Nghe An and visit the Son My Memorial and Museum, which was built to commemorate the infamous My Lai Massacre in the central province of Quang Ngai.
The trip will wrap up on July 24.
The annual camp, which was first held by the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese, in 2003, aims to connect young Vietnamese expatriates to their motherland by teaching them about its culture, history and language.
