Speaking at the event, Chairman of the VCCA Nguyen Quoc Ky said that the selected dishes will be added to the Vietnam Food Travel Map which aims to introduce to visitors a system of destinations and the cultural value of Vietnamese food in localities via images and video clips on social media channels.

The Vietnam Food Travel Map is expected to give gastronomers a chance to learn about local dishes in various regions nationwide and dining places as well as build a national brand for cultural tourism.
