A Festival that is Modest but Felt

The excitement brought by the SEA Games can instead be felt around My Dinh National Stadium. A four-sided billboard 3 meters high and 2 m wide stands right in the center of the intersection.

Not many banners have been displayed in the airport and streets of Vietnam, where the 2021 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games are being held. However, that does not mean that the sporting event lacks liveliness. The 2021 SEA Games remain festive for Vietnam’s residents, who are experiencing the economic impact of ASEAN’s biggest sporting event.

Almost no décor can be found at Noi Bai International Airport, Hanoi, to mark the country as the host of the SEA Games. Only two vertical banners placed at immigration checkpoints can be seen. The streets of Hanoi are also void of SEA Games banners and billboards.
