Although the festival originates from China, it has adopted certain traditional beliefs which find their roots in Vietnam. Most Vietnamese people believe that the first full moon of the New Year is very auspicious. They go to pagodas and pray for the best in the New Year. This festival is a very colourful one in Vietnam. Like in most parts of Asia which celebrate special Lantern festivals, huge lanterns are decorated and exhibited in a gorgeous way in Vietnam, too. Along the streets, lanterns are hung in rows.

Vegetarianism is widely practised on Tet Nguyen Tieu, and people eat only vegan food and drink lots of plain water. But the best of Vietnamese cuisine does show itself on this day. You can try Che Troi Nuoc, a special dessert consisting of a sweet soup with round balls made from rice and sugar sauce, which symbolises reunion. Tet Nguyen Tieu is celebrated among the Buddhist community, especially those in the centre and southern parts of Vietnam. Similar to Ho Chi Minh City, if you are in Hue and Danang during the occasion, you will see a grand celebration of Tet Nguyen Tieu. So, if ever you are in Vietnam during this wonderful Asian festival, which is around the first two months of the year, you are in for a treat.
