Hung Kings Commemoration

I am not sure but Vietnam doesn’t seem to have a lot of holidays (compared to the Philippines).  The longest would be the week of the Lunar New Year that can stretch from 3 days to 2 weeks — depending on the company or if you are willing to use up your leave credits.

On Tuesday, April 12, Vietnam will be celebrating the Hung Kings Commemoration.  Lifting from SG Holiday:

Hung Kings Commemoration – Traditional holiday adopted by the government on 28 March 2007 commemorating the mythical Hùng Kings. Hùng Vuong (Hùng Kings in Vietnamese) was the first king of Van Lang or Lac Viet (as Vietnam was known at the time). His dynasty existed in Vietnamese prehistory, but much of the lore from this time is now lost to the ages.

My office took the holiday a bit further by allowing us all a scheduled leave tomorrow, April 11!  🙂

So what to do on the 12th?  Definitely, we’re not going back to Suoi Tien.  For sure, the place will be packed!  However, it would be interesting to see how they will celebrate this year’s Hung Kings day.  Last year was a sight to see:

  3. naturally like your web-site but you need to check the
    spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it
    very troublesome to tell the reality then again I will surely come again again.

  4. Always remember black hairstyles it is you that is getting married.
