The general atmosphere leading up to Tết is in the bustle of shopping, decorating the home, cooking traditional
Tết food and waiting for relatives to return home.
People try to pay off their debts in advance so that they can be debt-free on Tết. Parents buy new clothes for their children so that the children can wear them when Tết arrives.
In the days leading up to Tết, the streets and markets are full of people. As the shops will be closed during Tết, people try to stock up on supplies as much as possible.
Have fun if you plant to have a trip to Vietnam in Tet holiday !
