According to the organizing board, the event aims to further bolster the bilateral relationship between Thailand and Vietnam, while also promoting people-to-people ties.
There will be 50 enterprises from northeastern localities of Thailand to attend the 2018 Thai Festival in Hanoi. They will introduce some of the typical products from their region.
In addition, there will be 20 Thai companies and importers operating in Vietnam in many areas such as food, beverages, consumer goods, tourism, and aviation to attend this year’s festival.
Especially, famous Thai chefs will join the festival to offer visitors with various Thai dishes. In addition, attending the festival, visitors will have an opportunity to enjoy traditional dances performed by both Thai dancers from Chiang Mai and Vietnamese students. Muay Thai performances are also one of the festival’s top highlights.
The ninth Thai Festival in 2017 raised over VND507 million (US$21.801) for the Vietnam Fund for Children and the Vietnam Association of Agent Orange Victims of Hanoi, according to Charge d’Affaires from Embassy of Thailand, Wanthanee Viputwongsakul.
This year, all revenue from the festival will also be donored to social organizations in Vietnam, she added.
Last year, the Thai Festival attracted more than 70 artists from Thailand who performed traditional arts, such as musicians from Sakon Nakhon province, famous Thai singers Palaphol Pholkongseng and Bell Supol, and the Sbunnga dance group from Chiang Mai province, with mixed traditional and modern dances.
