Visitors had the chance to appreciate the cuisine and national costumes at the booths representing mainland China, Columbia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Russia, Taiwan and Thailand, among others.
In addition, the night was filled with fantastic performances and games celebrating cultural diversity. Prizes were given to the best dishes, best booth as well as the best performance
At the opening ceremony, Professor Way Kuo, CityU President, thanked the students for their tremendous effort in organising the event, emphasising how such get-togethers promoted internationalisation on campus.
