Food and tourism are intertwined. Tourists crave not only for the sights and sounds of places they visit but also for culinary delights and unique delicacies that one CANNOT normally have in their place of residence.
So, its really great to hear that the Philippines’ department of tourism is continuing the very successful food and travel festival, Kain Na!, despite the pandemic.
Off It Goes Online!
Doing it online actually has some good advantages. Perhaps, the biggest would be the exposure of the event to more people residing outside of the country. One, doesn’t need to fly to the Philippines to be at the event. One can just open up their browser and can join in. Pretty cool, eh?
Kain na! will be held from Sept 15 to 18.
Online: Catch the livestream of the events on any of the following:
Kain Na!, translated in English as Let’s Eat!, is a food and travel festival showcasing the rich culinary traditions and diverse products of the Philppines.
