Food lovers, likewise, have their fair share here as a wide variety of delicious Arabian foods await them. "I am very fond of Syrian sweet," Sami Al Hagri, a college student, exclaimed while tasting a piece of sweet with his friends. "We usually come to enjoy the different kinds of food exclusively found in the Festival."
In addition to shopping, the International Trade Fair provides its visitors a superb opportunity to learn more about the participating countries and their cultures. All in all, such an event is really worth dropping by.
