On display are some of the traditional costume culture treasures of 10 ASEAN member countries. In addition, there are images of the landscapes, culture, countries and people of ASEAN, providing viewers with a greater understanding of ASEAN, thus enhancing connectivity and friendly solidarity among countries in the region.

Southeast Asian countries are famous for their unique and rich culture, clearly reflected through the extremely diverse traditional costumes based on the geographical, ethnic, climatic, and traditional cultural characteristics of each country in the region.

Traditional costumes not only express the beauty of costume culture but also honour the cultural traditions and souls of the people of each country in the ASEAN community. Although Western costumes are convenient and have been used more often in daily life, traditional costumes still have their own unique cultural beauty and are chosen by local people to wear during holidays and important events of each country in Southeast Asia.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Ta Quang Dong, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, said that the exhibition aims to introduce the culture, lives and people of ASEAN member countries through the beauty of their traditional clothes, thereby enhancing mutual understanding among people in the region, contributing to expanding cooperation in other fields.
