Unlike the majority of Vietnamese Kinh people, every year the Mong people often welcome the Lunar New Year around one month earlier. This year, the Mong people in mountainous Ha Giang Province have had a happier and better Tet after two years of COVID.
The Lunar New Year is a time for everyone in Việt Nam to come together, including foreigners. While some have their own take on Tết traditions, most celebrations are much the same as everyone else's in Việt Nam - food, drink, family and friends! How are you celebrating this Tet?
Tết (Lunar New Year) is always an interesting experience for foreigners in Việt Nam. Enjoying the Tết atmosphere, foreign ambassadors have shared their feelings about the biggest traditional festival in the country.
