Hanoi (VNA) - A Vietnam culture-culinary festival is taking place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE)’s Dubai from November 30 to December 5.

Enticing on-site cooking, music concerts and fashion shows featuring ao dai (long dress – Vietnam’s traditional costume) and ethnic costumes have become draws for thousands of local guests since the beginning of the week.

The Vietnamese art troupe is scheduled to perform in Dubai, the capital city of Abu Dahbi and Umm al-Quawain.

Vietnam’s exports to the UAE hit over 3.46 billion USD in the first seven months of this year, up 23.37 percent year on year.

The Middle East country has been acknowledged as one of the top ten trade partners of Vietnam.-VNA
