Cuisine and craft festival in Hà Nội to celebrate SEA Games

HÀ NỘI — A festival showcasing Ha Noi’s traditional cuisines and crafts will take place in the city from May 19-23, as part of the celebrations for the upcoming SEA Games.

The five-day event is organised by the Ha Noi Centre for Investment, Trade and Tourism Promotion in collaboration with relevant departments and agencies.

Visitors will be treated to Ha Noi’s popular traditional street foods such as phở (noodle), chả ca (grilled fish), bun thang (vermicelli soup with chicken, pork sausage, mushroom, and turnip pickle) or egg coffee, as well as other traditional Hanoian meals.

A separate area will be set up within the festival to introduce products of craft villages, like Bat Trang Ceramics Village in Gia Lam District, Vạn Phuc Silk Village in Ha Đong District, Phu Vinh Rattan and Bamboo Village in Chương Mỹ District and Hạ Thai Lacquer Village in Thường Tín District.

The organisers will also arrange a game zone for the whole family and children to experience both traditional and modern games like tug of war, blind man’s buff, rope jumping and e-sports, imitating SEA Games competitions. 

Ha Noi Cuisine and Craft Festival 2022 will be held on the pavements of Le Quang Đạo Street in Nam Từ Liem District.

The 31st SEA Games will run in Ha Noi and 11 neighbouring northern localities from May 12-23.

It will feature 40 sports and 526 events, attracting around 10,000 participants. VNS
