A festival featuring delicacies from across Vietnam began on Sunday night in Da Nang as part of its summer tourism season activities, attracting a large number of locals and tourists. 

The event, devoted to Da Nang cuisine and beer space, is the highlight of the coastal city's summer festival activities.

Aside from central Vietnam delicacies, tourists can enjoy other regional specialties such as hu tieu Sa Dec (Sa Dec stretchy rice noodle soup) and pho Thin Lo Duc, a dish from the namesake popular Hanoian pho restaurant.

According to Tan Van Duong, deputy director of the Da Nang Department of Tourism, both domestic and international tourists have returned, allowing the tourism industry to begin to recover in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.

As a result, the Department of Tourism is concentrating on promoting the destination through international events and on-site promotional activities.

The food fest is scheduled to take place at Bien Dong Park from July 3 to 6, from 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
