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! 🙂
