Soc Trang’s waterway, garden festival hoped to lure 10,000 visitors

The three-day festival in My Phuoc islet features a variety of cultural and sports activities, including a dragon boat racing tournament and sports activities like petanque and folk games. 

Cultural events include a festival of “don ca tai tu” – a world intangible cultural heritage, a photo exhibition of Ke Sach district’s socio-economic attainments, and entertainment activities. 

Meanwhile, local fruits, aquatic products and specialties are being showcased at 15 booths. A fruit arrangement competition and a cuisine contest will also form part of this annual festival. 

The event aims to honour garden farmers and fruit specialties of Ke Sach district – the biggest fruit farming area in Soc Trang. It is also intended to help local residents meet with tourists and scientists to seek ways improving fruit quality, thereby meeting the growing demand of domestic and foreign markets. 

My Phuoc islet is a “green” tourist destination in Soc Trang province with fresh air, large fruit gardens, and a number of tourism services. It is located at the intersection of the national highways of 60 and Southern Hau River, which is favourable for the travel of tourists.
