Tet Festival

One of Vietnam's biggest celebrations, the annual Tet Festival celebrates the New Year in a jubilant fashion. Tet Nguyen Dan falls around the time of Chinese New Year as they share the same lunar calendar. A time for friends and family to come together, it is also a time to pay respects to deceased ancestors and many celebrate the occasion with a lavish meal before heading to one of the many public parades and fireworks displays taking place in all of the major towns and cities. Although visiting Vietnam during Tet can be facinating and great fun, it can also be a trying time for local travel and difficult to find accommodation, plan accordingly.
