timing of a Vietnam trip around Tet 2017

Jump to last reply

I am looking to visit Vietnam in early 2017. Vietnamese New Year and Tet will be from Jan. 27 to Feb. 1, 2017. I will use AA miles for this trip and I have to get something booked by March 22 to get the lower mileage rates. The last day I can travel is Feb. 15, 2017 for my return home.

I'd like to stay in Vietnam for 2 weeks. If I plan the trip for early January, do I need to be leaving the country by Jan. 27? Is that when things will shut down and prices go up? Or will the Tet related travel problems start earlier than Jan. 27? How soon after Feb. 1 will things return to normal? Would it be safe to arrive Feb. 2 or will services still be all booked up and things closed?
