Not quite knowing what to expect during the Annual TET celebration the end of January & worried that the city would be shut down, we were pleasantly surprised to see that all was alive and happening. Yes, there are some stores shut (for several days in a row) but there are enough others for you to find what you need and restaurants are all open! 2014 was the Year of the Horse and you definitely will see representations of the animal of that year throughout the festival and the city. Go early to see the floral arrangements and displays as the square and nearby street get very, very packed. You will see the most beautifully dressed Vietnamese, with entire families, multi generations, taking family photos.
