Children participating in the program had a chance to experience making traditional dishes of Tet, under the guidance of artisans from Hue's traditional craft villages and volunteer teams from KOICA (South Korea), including chung cake, tet cake, jam, tteokguk soup, kimchi, and Dalgona (South Korean sponge candy), etc.

Besides, there were spaces for them to experience making Thanh Tien paper flowers, drawing Sinh village paintings, writing calligraphy, making and decorating lucky money envelopes, making traditional South Korean lanterns, and folding  Hanbok origami, etc. In addition, a checking-in space with Vietnamese traditional ao dai, and South Korean traditional Hanbok, as well as art exchange programs and folk games from Vietnam and South Korea also attracted the participation of a large number of young people.

According to Huynh Diem Phuong (from Hue City), the experience space of the program helps young people feel the traditional beauty and characteristics of the traditional Lunar New Year culture of Vietnam and South Korea. This is also an opportunity to exchange and learn more about the traditional culture of South Korea.

A representative of the Organizing Committee said that through the program, they hoped that young people would understand and love more about the meanings and customs of Tet and, thereby, promote the traditional beauty of Vietnamese traditional Tet culture. At the same time, it is also an opportunity for young people to access and learn about the cultural values of South Korea.
