The well-decorated Vietnamese pavilion attracted great attention from numerous visitors with a variety of products such as Ao Dai (Vietnam’s traditional costume), non la (conical hat) and many of the country’s typical souvenirs on sale, as well as Vietnamese cuisine.
This was the second time Vietnam has participated in the international charity event in Bangkok. The opening ceremony on November 17 was attended by the Princess Soamsawali of Thailand, Vietnamese Ambassador to Thailand Nguyen Hai Bang, representatives of countries and international organisations in Thailand.
The event featured 160 booths, which showcased hundreds of traditional items from many countries, such as food, fine arts and garments. A part of the revenue generated by the fair will be contributed to projects supporting disadvantaged children and women.
The fair, considered as a good opportunity to promote handicrafts and fine arts products, as well as the cuisine of each country, to those from other nations, attracted thousands of visitors.
