The Vietnam Cuisine Culture Association and the HCM City Department of Tourism will organise the Tết (Lunar New Year) Festival from January 3 to 5 at Lê Văn Tám Park in District 1.
Apart from bánh chưng (square cake), there are many other delicacies that have become popular over a thousand or more years. They include phu thê cake, mướt rolls, and sừng trâu (buffalo horn) cake.
Sweet and savoury cake recipes in southern Việt Nam have evolved over decades to conform to changing lifestyles. Now, in a bid to build their brands and earn more income, cake artisans plan to sell their goods abroad. Ngọc Diệp reports.
Paragon Hill in the outskirts of Hà Nội is a kingdom of roses, with some 600,000 rose trees growing in its terrace fields.
One of the remarkable aspects of Tết is that it celebrates both personal and national identities. To celebrate Tết is to be Vietnamese.
