  colorful TET by Night
by richiecdisc

TET or Vietnam’s New Year’s cum Christmas festival is crazy enough during the day but if you are in town when it is going on, you have to walk the market area at night to really experience its colorful splendor. The streets are buzzing with people out buying supplies for TET and motorcycles whiz by you constantly, with everything from kumquat trees to sacks of rice on the back. Red is the color theme and all that glitters is noticed.

Dress Code: It is generally cool outside at night during the TET so wear something warm and try and look smart. Most Vietnamese do!

Directions: In the northern part of the Old Quarter, Hang Luoc and Hang Ma are best.
Theme: People Watching

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
