Vietnam’s Mid-Autumn Festival

Thu Sep 1st 2016 to Fri Sep 16th 2016

Event Details

Each year, mid-Autumn Festival (or Moon Festival) lights up Vietnam as one of the most colorful and culturally significant festivals in the country. This year, taking place on September 9th countrywide, get a glimpse into the history and traditions of this beautiful festival, and where to go to experience it.

The capital city comes to life during mid-Autumn Festival, with the city’s families taking to the streets for days leading up to the event itself. Since mid-Autumn is heavily focused on children, Hang Ma Street in the Old Quarter, famous for selling children’s toys and gifts, is especially bustling during mid-Autumn. 

Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City during Mid-Autumn Festival is glittering to say the least, with many areas in downtown Saigon coming alive with festivities. The downtown ward of Pham Ngu Lao, popular with tourists to the city, is especially popular for lion dances, with a full week of performances from the oldest children for the first day and progressively younger until the full moon.
Hoi An
The ancient town of Hoi An is famous for its lanterns, and holds a monthly lantern festival for each new full moon. Consequently, Hoi An’s mid-Autumn celebrations certainly put other destinations to shame, with some of the largest parades in the country. 

Phan Thiet
Widely recognized by locals as one of the best places in the country for the yearly festival, Phan Thiet is home not only to a beautiful coastline and white sand beaches, but also beautiful parades of lights and lanterns during mid-Autumn.
