The 14th version of the annual festival is being jointly organised by the municipal Department of Tourism and the HCM City municipal Tourism Association with the aim of promoting local tourism and attracting more guests.

Moreover, HCM City has been listed by CNN as one of the world’s 23 best street food destinations. The US outlet said that perching on a plastic stool on the sidewalk, with a steaming bowl of pho (noodle soup with beef or chicken), and watching the bustling traffic is a “perfect” afternoon in the city.

Pho, banh mi (bread served with condiments, chicken or pork) and com tam (broken rice) were introduced as typical street food in Ho Chi Minh City.

CNN also suggested people visit Pham Ngu Lao Street – a place close to sites like Ben Thanh Market and Ho Chi Minh Fine Arts Museum./.
