Vietnamese Cultural and Food Days in the Great Market Hall (Nagycsarnok) of Budapest offer a great way to learn about the exotic country of Vietnam. Do you recall the picture of floating cities and floating markets?
Well, we cannot recreate the Vietnamese atmosphere in Budapest’s biggest market hall, the Great Market Hall unless on the river Danube, but you can certainly try some Vietnamese foods, drinks, buy gifts and souvenirs, etc. on the Vietnamese Days in Budapest.
Vietnamese foods (salad rolls, spicy lemongrass soups, etc.) and drinks (Jasmine tea, draft beer, iced coffee, sugar cane juice, Pennywort juice, etc.) are available in every major city now in the world in Vietnamese restaurants and cafes. Still, come and try the authentic Vietnamese cuisine first hand in Budapest.
Learn about the big cities in Vietnam, like Hanoi (Ha Noi), Hochimin City (Ho Shi Min City), Can Tho, Da Nang, Hai Pong, their attractions, travel tips, etc.

You may even have a chance to buy some Vietnamese souvenirs to take home as small gifts from Hungary without packing too many things in your suitcase: Vietnamese teas and Robusta coffees, herbs, conical hats, handcrafted ethnic scarfs, and other typical Vietnamese garments, or also some kind of art piece made with Lacquerware technique. Similarly to Hungarian embroidered cloths and clothes, Vietnamese embroidery or silk make also great presents.
