Food and tourism festival will take place in Vietnam’s Nha Trang

A food and tourism festival will be held in Nha Trang City, Khanh Hoa Province, Vietnam, from January 29 to 31, expecting to attract around 50,000 visitors. 


This event will set up 48 booths to introduce the popular tourist attractions, historical and cultural sites of Khanh Hoa Province as well as agricultural products from the locality to visitors. People can sample typical local dishes and specialties there. In the evenings, an art troupe Hai Dang will deliver street performances with local students. 

Nha Trang, also known as the Riviera of the East Sea, is a coastal city and capital of Khanh Hoa Province. It has clear waters with rich marine life and thriving reefs, green mountain ranges at each end and 19 natural islets that are not far away. Offering a large number of sightseeing and recreational activities, the city has breath-taking structures that date back to the Champa Kingdom, Buddhist temples, Gothic-style Catholic churches, as well as natural hot springs, salt fields, and unique waterfalls.

The festival aims to promote the tourist industry of Khanh Hoa, which has also negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Vietnam has suspended all inbound international commercial flights since late March, 2020. Although it announced the resumption of commercial flight routes with China, Japan, South Korea, Laos and Cambodia last September, it does not allow inbound flights, apart from special flights to bring experts in. On January 5, the government had suspended flights from countries and territories with the new variants, starting with the U.K. and South Africa. But some media reported that Russia will restart commercial flights to Vietnam later this month.
