One fascinating aspect of Vietnamese culture is the mystical presence of dragons since the dawn of recorded history. This Lunar New Year of the Dragon brings to mind the ancient Vietnamese folk story, 'The Children of Dragons and Fairies'. Legend has it that the Dragon King from the sea - Lac Long Quan, and the Fairy Queen from the mountains - Au Co, fell in love. Their offspring was an egg sac, from which hatched a hundred children, who became the ancestors of the Vietnamese people.

This beautiful story has inspired the Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort to welcome 2024 with the theme ‘A Dragon Heritage’ in remembrance of Vietnam's roots and sharing its unique traditions with all of its guests from Vietnam and across the world.

The festive Lunar New Year market kicked off the series of events on February 10. The garden was decorated with traditional lanterns, and the market featured traditional activities designed to deliver a cultural experience. Market-goers also learned the art of classic Vietnamese calligraphy with an old master.
