More than 100 food booths will be featured at the annual food festival named “Taste of the World” scheduled for January 11 to 14 at Le Van Tam Park in HCMC’s District 1.

The 12th edition of the festival, organized by the HCMC Department of Tourism in conjunction with the Vietnam Tourism Association, is expected to attract the participation of many countries like Denmark, Argentina, Italy and Thailand.

Furthermore, a food court showcasing traditional typical dishes spanning from Vietnam’s three regions of South, Central and the North and depicting a cultural space of street food will be available to meet the diverse taste of Vietnamese diners.
