Mui Ne Street Food Festival will take place in Ham Tien – Mui Ne area from September 1 to 2 with nearly 20 culinary booths.
To create more tourism products and welcome tourists to Mui Ne during this year’s National Day September 2 holiday, Mui Ne Street Food Festival will take place in Nguyen Dinh Chieu street, Ham Tien ward, according to the Binh Thuan Tourism Association.
Attending the festival, tourists may visit the food stalls and enjoy many kinds of Vietnamese food traditions. In addition, visitors will have a chance to enjoy many kinds of Asian and European cuisines. Those will make the shindig more exciting ahead of the moment of National Day September 2 celebration.
Binh Thuan has plans to develop Mui Ne, a popular beach area in the coastal city of Phan Thiet, into a national tourism site by 2030. The information was announced at a conference on March 27.
By 2025, Mui Ne would become the main resort center of Binh Thuan and the south-central coastal region, welcoming 10 million visitors per year. By 2030, the area is poised to meet all requirements for becoming a national-level site, with 16 million visitors and VND58 trillion (US$2.5 billion) in tourism revenue.
Binh Thuan aims to attract tourists from new markets in central and northern Europe and the Middle East, and will focus on beaches, sports, culture and community tourism. “
To achieve the goal, Binh Thuan province should create diverse tourism products, boost promotion and educate people,” Pham Trung Luong, former deputy head of the Institute for Tourism Development Research, was quoted as saying.
Luong emphasized that developing Mui Ne into a national tourism site would boost development in the region, and links with the Central Highlands.
