Celebrate Lunar New Year 2023 in Vietnam

The Lunar New Year 2023, is almost upon us. We will enter the Year of the Rabbit on the 22nd of January. It’s the most wonderful occasion to spend a holiday in Vietnam, where the New Year is known as Tết, enjoying the celebratory atmosphere and exploring one of the oldest festivals in the world.

Sharing happy moments

Tết Vietnam is the perfect time to visit this amazing country. All the events are ideal for spending time with friends and family, making memories that’ll last a lifetime. Travelling during national holidays is also an eye-opening experience as you celebrate Lunar New Year in a different location, with all the unique traditions and experiences that come with that. Truly a holiday filled with new adventures that you will never forget. 

Food delights

In the Vietnamese language, to celebrate Tết also means to eat, which affirms the important role of Vietnam’s Lunar New Year’s food. One Vietnamese traditional proverb denotes that you can be hungry all year except for the 3 days of the Tết Vietnam festival because dozens of delicious dishes and desserts will be prepared on Lunar New Year in Vietnam. So, be prepared for a feast to remember.

Things to do

When you’re not joining in the celebrations, it’s well worth exploring this beautiful country, as there really is so much to do and see. You’ll create memories that will last a lifetime on the Charm of Vietnam Discovery in 9 Days, when you visit some of the most stunning places in Vietnam, and arguably the whole planet. Or you could treat yourself to a 10-day Vietnam Central Coast Bike Tour where you’ll get under the skin of Vietnam, including discovering the hidden secrets of Ho Chi Minh City. Or for a more spiritual experience, the Authentic yoga classes in Hoi An provide a serene haven where they encourage you to explore the inner you. 


Where to stay 

Ho Chi Minh City

For the biggest party in Vietnam, head to the city of lights. The whole population will be out in force celebrating the new year, with good vibes flooding all the bars, restaurants, and events going on during this exciting time. The main spectacle is the fireworks, with the whole city coming together to watch the awesome displays. The explosion of colour doesn’t stop there however, with other events like the Nguyen Hue Flower Street Festival and Tao Dan Flower Festival. Truly a place brimming with energy during Tết. 

Hoi An 

Hoi An is a magical place to welcome the new year thanks to the beautiful architecture of its Ancient Town, and the canals that weave through it. The Hoi An Lantern Festival is also a sight to behold and the ultimate instagrammable event. As this is a prime location to spend Tết, Link Travel Deals recommend booking accommodation and transport early to avoid any disappointment. 


Tết is an interesting time to visit the capital as many locals will have headed back to their hometowns to celebrate with their families. It’s a perfect time to see this city without some of the hustle and bustle that dominates it day-to-day. But don’t worry there’s still plenty to see and get involved with during the celebrations in one of the oldest capital cities in the world. 

You’ll be spoilt for choice for things to enjoy in Vietnam at any time of year, but there’s nothing quite like the added magical atmosphere of the Tết Vietnam New Year.
