In particular, the festival also introduces "unique and strange" delicacies, which have brought many interesting experiences for guests to enjoy. About 300 typical dishes and drinks are prepared and performed by culinary experts, talented and experienced chefs from member units under Saigontourist Group system from all over the country. Therefore, the festival is also considered as a short-term culinary tour when guests do not need to go, far but can still fully enjoy the culinary flavors of all three regions.
Moreover, guests coming to the festival also have the opportunity to live in a space filled with festive atmosphere imbued with the folklore of the three regions. Resonating with the culinary space are three clusters imitating "real scenes" of traditional craft villages, folk games and performances of traditional art forms. Art performances and cultural exchanges are changed every day, keeping the festival's performance space fresh throughout the duration of the event.
