NDO – The tenth Thai Festival opened in Hanoi on September 15 by the Thai Embassy in Vietnam in coordination with the Hanoi city People’s Committee.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Wanthanee Viputwongsakul, Charge d’Affaires at the Embassy of Thailand in Vietnam, said that the festival aims to strengthen people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.

The event serves as a platform to introduce the beautiful country of Thailand, its diverse culture, traditional arts, and excellent cuisine to the Vietnamese people.

Visitors to the two-day festival have been delighted with the traditional and contemporary arts performances by artists from Thailand’s Chiang Mai provincial art troupe, and Muay Thai – Thailand’s traditional martial art, while tasting superb dishes served by famous Thai chefs.

Visitors can also take part in a lucky draw to win return tickets to Thailand and other generous gifts.
