Lunar New Year, also known as Tet, is one of Vietnam's most important holidays. Celebrated at the end of January or early February (depending on the lunar calendar), Tet signals the start of spring and is a time for family reunion, giving thanks, and remembering ancestors. If you're thinking of traveling to Vietnam during this festive period, here's what you need to know. photo: Huynh Phong Is it worth visiting Vietnam during Lunar New Year?…

Everyone I talk to about this say it is one of the hardest times to travel and to be a part of the festivities because everywhere is packed. It seems if you are going to be a part of it, you want to head out to Vietnam 2 or 3 weeks ahead of time and plan for a 3 or 4 week stay!

I agree with you. Lunar New Year is one of my favorite holidays. It's a great time to get together with family and friends, and it always feels like everyone is in a good mood!

Some of my family celebrate it outside of Vietnam. I think it would be great if this expanded more. It seems like there are no holidays in January in the western world anyways.

I have never gone nor considered it as I tend to avoid any major holidays when it comes to travel. It doesn't matter if it is local or in another country, I don't want to travel in the height of busy occasions and people looking to visit family.

I think this is one of my favorite celebrations around the world and while I have not been to Vietnam during it, I know how much fun it can be. I am hoping to one day be a part of it.

Does the cost of everything for travel and such go up during this time of the year? I had never been to Vietnam in January. I have gone in February but near the middle to end of the month.
