(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The five-day Thai Festival showcasing the country's rich heritage and culture began with a fashion show at the Shangri-La's Bar al Jissah Resort and Spa on Tuesday.

The event which was held in the presence of ambassadors of various countries, will hold the rest of its activities at the Muscat Grand Mall.

''With this event we are trying to showcase our heritage and culture. Our country offers the best of the both worlds. One can enjoy the beaches and the hills too. There is so much to explore that one would want to visit again. We would like to introduce the visitors to Thai cuisine as well. This is to make sure that when you visit the country you do not miss out on things,'' said H E Dr Pornchai Danvivathana, the Ambassador of Thailand.

The opening day of the event showcased different varieties of rice, tea and other specialties of Thailand.  ''Thailand is a popular tourist destination. With the help of this festival we are trying to provide more information about the place so that more people can explore the place. When one reads or hears about a place the urge to visit it grows,'' added the wife of Manasawee Tonyoopaiboon, the First Secretary of Thailand. The festival will end on June 21. <
