This is also the busiest time of year to visit Vietnam so ensure you book far ahead and allow for extra budget to travel. Locals will be travelling home to visit family in the lead up to the celebration so transport and roads can become very congested. The holiday lasts for three days with some traditions observed for up to a week.
Upcoming dates for Tet:
