 The four-day festival introduces more than 350 local dishes from provinces and cities in all the northern, central, and southern regions of Vietnam.

Along with 40 booths with experienced chefs from the Saigontourist Group and its subordinate hotels, restaurants and resorts, the event will be attended by representatives from Vietnam Airlines and other units in Ben Tre and Tay Ninh provinces. Moreover, it will also showcase traditional handicrafts associated with cuisine, unique traditional art performances, and folk games.

With a vast collection of dishes and drinks, culinary experts from the Saigontourist Group have temporarily classified them into several main categories. Guests attending the festival can enhance their culinary experiences by choosing the one they are most interested in exploring.
