Thai Nguyen trade and tourism fair highlights Vietnamese tea
Update: Nov 25, 2015
The Thai Nguyen Trade and Tourism Fair, themed ‘Quintessence of Vietnamese tea - Connecting people’, officially kicked off in Thai Nguyen province on November 23, as part of activities during the third Tea Festival.

The fair features over 200 pavilions by trade and tourism promotion organisations and enterprises from 20 provinces and cities around the country, such as Lang Son, Ha Giang, Yen Bai, Tuyen Quang, Bac Kan, Cao Bang, Hoa Binh and Binh Thuan.

On display are specialities from the localities participating in the event including Ba Be vermicelli from Bac Kan; Mau Son cinnamon, anise flowers and wine from Lang Son; Shan Tuyet tea from northern mountainous provinces; mushrooms and corn liquor from Ha Giang; Phan Thiet fish sauce, and Binh Thuan wooden furniture.

The highlight of the fair is the booths introducing different tea products from numerous localities as well as ways to preserve and make tea.

A makeshift traditional rural market of northern mountainous provinces, with old people enjoying cups of hot tea in small bamboo tea shops, attracts a large number of visitors.

The event aims to honour and promote Vietnamese tea, particularly the Thai Nguyen tea brand, to both people in the country and international friends.

It is also expected to strengthen the co-operation among participating localities in trade promotion, contributing to the industrial, trade and tourism development of the country.

The 2015 Thai Nguyen Trade and Tourism Fair will last until November 28.
