The ongoing Hanoi Tet fair, which closes Jan 26, showcases a wide variety of food specialties, handicraft items and folk games from across the country.

The fair, going on at Quan Ngua Sports Complex, at 30 Van Cao, Ba Dinh district, boasts some 250 stalls of cuisine, ornamental plants, potteries and items typically used for Tet.

Another highlight is the re-creation of traditional craft making processes and folk games including walking on stilts, tug of war, and “o quan”.

Visitors can also take a look and choose for themselves among the Hanoi delicacies such as La Vong fish paste and "banh tom Ho Tay" (Tay Lake crisp shrimp pastry) as well as specialties from other provinces.
