HÀ GIANG –  The northern mountainous province of Hà Giang kicked off its first international culture, tourism and cuisine festival on March 29, aiming at promoting tourism brand, strengthening tourism cooperation and introducing local staples.

The opening ceremony was attended by leaders of several ministries and Hà Giang province, the ambassadors of Azerbaijan and China, businesses from Yunnan (China), local residents and domestic and foreign visitors.

Sixty booths are arranged at the three-day event, including 17 from China, Azerbaijan, the Republic of Korea, Japan and Thailand.
