For Vietnamese people, Tết (Lunar New Year) means days of reunion, hope and luck. 

All family members, especially those who live far from home, are looking forward to gathering together.

This year, State employees will enjoy a 7-day break for Tết holiday from February 14 to 20. Students started the holidays earlier.

During these days, millions of people are flocking to major bus and train stations in big cities to come back home for a family reunion.
