HÀ NỘI — Like Christmas and New Year in the West, Tết (Lunar New Year) is the time for Vietnamese people to come back home and enjoy the event with their beloved.

This year, the vacation for Lunar New Year starts from Thursday this week until next Wednesday. While some people can drive home by their own vehicles, many others flock to airports, bus and train stations to get their trips back home.
