The long lines of diners at all Vietnamese food stalls reflected the attractiveness of Vietnamese food to French people.

In addition to offering a range of traditional recipes and new culinary creations of Vietnamese dishes, visitors to the festival also had a chance to explore a book market, which showcased the diversity of Vietnamese and French books.

According to Vuong Huu Nhan, President of the Vietnamese Association in France - the festival’s organizer, following the success of previous editions, this year's event attracted nearly 6,000 visitors.

Ariane Louvet, a visitor, said that she loves Vietnamese culture because her husband is Vietnamese. Coming to the festival, she could taste Vietnamese dishes and find books about the Southeast Asian country for her children, so they can better understand its culture.

Vietnamese Ambassador to France Dinh Toan Thang spoke highly of the organization of Ici Vietnam Festival at a location familiar to the Vietnamese community, noting that it aims to popularize unique features of Vietnamese cuisine, leaving a deep impression in the hearts of visitors.
