The Yasaka Saigon Nha Trang Resort Hotel & Spa held its annual Tet Cake Festival to welcome the Lunar New Year in Nha Trang City, Khanh Hoa Province, on February 15.

At this year’s festival, the hotel made a 35m-long Tet cake and 999 smaller ones with various kinds of stuffing such as green beans and small red beans.

To prepare for the festival, the hotel bought hundreds of kilos of sticky rice, beans, pork and dong (phrynium) leaves. As many as 100 people participated in the event.

All the cakes were wrapped at April 2 Square before being cooked at the hotel on the night of February 15.

Some of the giant cake was offered to hotel guests and the rest was sold to raise money for the local “fund for the poor”.
