Besides the fireworks time, there are various cultural and artistic activities organized by local authorities around the fireworks locations.
Like other Asian countries, Tet Holiday is much more important to Vietnamese people than Western New Year. This is special occasion for people to spend more time for their families, visiting friends and acquaintances and prepare for an upcoming new year.
