This activity was held to introduce the existing faculty at Dong Thap University to freshmen. In this activity there are several exhibition stands and food bazaars.

We were invited to go to Vietha restaurant in Cao Lanh City. We went there using the school bus. They prepare a lot of food, and of course we can try everything 😊.
