HÀ NAM — A first-of-its-kind festival to promote local tourism, traditional crafts and cuisine took place in the northern province of Hà Nam and ended on Sunday (October 8).
The festival was held in keeping with the theme of the 2017 National Tourism Year, which aims to develop tourism into a key economy.
Speaking at the opening of the event, Vice Chairman of the Hà Nam Province’s People’s Committees Bùi Quang Cẩm stressed that the tourism, traditional crafts and cuisine festival, this year, aimed at introducing to visitors local tourism products of not only Hà Nam Province but also provinces within the Red River Delta.
The three-day event was also expected to open up venues for a tourism cooperation among regions within the Hà Nam Province and other provinces, nearby.
The festival showcased 70 booths of 50 units from six districts and the city of Hà Nam Province, the local Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the local Tourism Promotion Information Centre and the Tourism Promotion Centres of nine provinces in the Red River Delta and its vicinity.
All the booths were designed with themes to introduce the cuisines, cultures and traditional crafts of each participating province. The exhibition was interspersed with performances from artisans and on-the-spot introductions of guides, which attracted a huge number of visitors to the festival. — VNS
