Tet is coming real close, one more day to go. Have you felt it yet? Spring festive atmosphere has already filled every little corner of Hanoi. Streets are covered with reddish pink peach blossoms and orange kumquat trees. Only at this time can you see Hanoi in its purest: the city will be vacant, revealing its beautiful quiet old streets, ancient traditions, quality family time, just like Western Christmas. Good news for those who love tranquility though bad news for Vietnamese cuisine fans. Most restaurants in Hanoi will be closed during Tet, be it local or foreign-owned, usually from January 30th (the last day of old Lunar year) to February 3rd or 4th (the 4th or 5th of lunar January). If you are invited to a Vietnamese family, it would be ideal because such kinds of traditional food as Chung cake, boiled chicken, pickled onion… are not available elsewhere but at Vietnamese homes during Tet holiday. For you to have less trouble finding a place for an enjoyable meal rather than your hotel, here we have a list of restaurants and their reopening schedules. Hope this might help you adjust your itinerary!

Happy Lunar New year!
Best wishes, Hanoikids.
