Áo Dài: History and Significance in Vietnamese Culture

8282
Looking at my mom’s old school pictures, (I) Isabella was inspired to write this article about one of the key essence of Vietnamese culture: the Ao Dai.  Coincidentally, Neil also did a write-up about the ao dai so we decided to combine our two pieces into this story today. The beauty and gracefulness of this dress leave a deep impression in foreigners  who visit Vietnam, and it has a strong effect in our hearts as well.
 
There are many things that deeply impress people about Vietnam; among them is the Áo Dài. Those who know about Vietnamese culture or join Vietnam tours are often fond of the Áo Dài. Áo Dài is Vietnam's national outfit; it is usually worn during special occasions such as Tet, holidays or weddings. Beside special occasions, Vietnamese high school girls also wear Áo Dài to class every day.
Let’s have a close look at the Áo Dài:
