The team at the JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi are serving a variety of Bavarian specialties typically associated with Oktoberfest, including German sausages and pretzels.

Guests enjoy free flow König’s Pilsener, with a real German beer stein as a keepsake.

The Anton Show Band play some traditional Bavarian music and more modern songs, with games and lucky draws also held amid the stunning surrounds of the JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi.

Impressed by the crowds last year, the Anton Show Band returned to the Hanoi stage for Oktoberfest 2015.
