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.

- If you're looking for a way to spend New Year's with family and friends, consider going to the city of Ho Chi Minh City. This city is full of historical sites and is a great place to spend New Year's Eve or New Year's Day. "
