Just like “Tet”, Trung Thu (also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival) is one of the most exciting holidays for all Vietnamese people. This festival is not only the occasion for family members to reunite and celebrate the traditions, but also the time of the year to travel with loved ones and have bonding time with each other. What is more special than this mid-autumn festival where travelers have the chance to experience the impressive and relaxing full moon in the middle of the mystique Halong bay with The Au Co cruise.
New travel trend for Mid-Autumn Festival
Mid-Autumn Festival is the time of the year when family members gather together and celebrate the full moon: grandparents and parents enjoy the beauty of the night with mooncake and green tea, while children take their star lanterns and masks and follow the lion dance team on the streets. It is also an opportunity for young families to travel and spend some time with each other after many days working in the hustle and bustle of life.
To entertain and engage people, many local streets and shopping malls in the big cities have planned to decorate with flowers and sparkling lamps and have prepared many exciting performances and activities. In recent years, many provinces and travel destinations also organize the Mid-Autumn Festival on a big scale to attract tourists for travelers to enjoy the Fullmoon like in Tuyen Quang, Hue or Hoi An, etc.
Moon gazing on the five-star cruise
One of the most luxurious ways to enjoy the moon and the night sky is to step on a cruise and sail out in West Lake in Hanoi, Saigon River in Ho Chi Minh City or the magnificent Halong Bay. There is not a better way to celebrate this festival than enjoying the Vietnamese traditional mooncake with hot green tea under the silver moonlight between thousands of natural majestic limestone islands.
