A festival showcasing delicious and special dishes of all three regions of the country opened in Tuy Hoa city, the central province of Phu Yen , on July 6.

Twenty one participating units from 12 cities and provinces have brought thousands of dishes, both traditionally and modernly, to the festival.

As part of the National Tourism Year South Central Coast – Phu Yen 2011, themed “Sea and Islands Tourism”, the four-day festival offers an opportunity for tourist organisations from the northern, central and southern regions of the country to promote their tourism products and help local people study the cuisine culture of each region.

This is also a chance for Phu Yen province to promote its image as well as special dishes to domestic and foreign visitors./.
