Hà Nội Scribbles: COVID-19 edition

Travel & Living in Hanoi, Vietnam

Tết Tết Tết Tết Đến Rồi!

Tết, the Lunar New Year, is almost upon us. Houses are being cleaned in preparation as the population gears up for three days, or more, of celebrations. Roads out of Hanoi were at gridlock on Friday as people streamed out of the city to their hometowns to take in the New Year with their families.

Airports are pretty much the same throughout SE Asia at Tết. Unfortunately, Tết is not a good time to be travelling. Everywhere is busy, and on the roads in Vietnam, there is always a spike in road deaths and injuries.

On a less morbid note, it is easy to see the decorations and get caught up in the festive atmosphere, but what is the true meaning of Tết? Find out here
