Vietnam Goes Big on 2012's Countdown

It's no surprise that Lunar New Year is the most important holiday in our (Vietnam) culture; however, I'm very happy to see that Vietnam has been going big on celebrating international holidays as well.  I wanna share with you some images of New Year's Eve from the 3 regions in our lovely country, Vietnam.


These pictures remind me of the NYE countdown at Times Square in New York, USA.  I can surely feel the excitement from the pictures.  Seems like everyone had a lot of fun counting down to 2012.

Let's move on to Hue:

Hue city celebrated NYE with a touch of Vietnamese tradition.  Although it was not as big and crowded as Hanoi's NYE but I can still feel the warmness from the pictures.

Last but not least, Saigon (HCMC):

Saigon celebrated NYE will a fireworks show which attracted many people.  

I wish I was in Vietnam to participate in the NYE countdown, it looks like so much fun.  Although I would probably hate the crowdedness on the streets.  Anyways, Vietpopworld would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! May 2012 brings you lots of happiness, love, luck and success :)  We would also like to take this opportunity to say thanks to everyone who comes to our blog, read, and share your thoughts. <3


  1. Pretty lights :) I want to move to Vietnam too!

  2. Happy new year, Vietpopworld. Happy new year, everyone. I hope the year of the dragon will bring us all smiles.
    If VN is this festive for solar new year, I can only imagine what they'll do for Tet.

  3. Yay! Glad our economy is improving! Wow! Ha Noi is sure making it a huge celebration just like New York would! Happy New Year 2012 everyone! Can't wait for TET 2012! :)
