|Tet, which is Vietnam’s longest holiday of the year, often starts at end of January or beginning of February. This festive time offers a chance for a journey around the country in the freshness of spring.
Since free time and economic conditions, three and four day domestic tours at reasonable prices could be the trend this Tet. As usual, Nha Trang, Dalat, Phan Thiet and Phu Quoc are the favorites of young tourists while more mature travelers prefer central and northern regions such as Hue, Phong Nha, Danang, Hoi An, Hanoi, Ha Long, Tuan Chau and Sapa. Many tourist companies in the city are offering discounts and promotional programs as well as redesigning tours. Fiditour offers “Enjoy springtime in Vietnam’s homeland”, a series of tours. They include three-day /four-night tours to Con Dao, Phu Quoc, Nha Trang and Dalat, and combine relaxation and entertainment.
These tours offer mud bath, steam bath and massage and sport activities such as fising in Phu Quoc, coral reef diving in Nha Trang and hiking to conquer Langbian peak. Day trips to My Tho in the delta are always available. Tourists here may row a canoe through floating flower markets, hear “don ca tai tu” (amateur southern music) and visit ancient pagodas to pray for good luck in the New Year. Longer trips to the central to explore world heritages or to the north to enjoy cool weather, see the white apricot blossoming in Sapa or make a pilgrimage to Yen Tu, the capital of Buddhism, are also offered.
