The Mid-Autumn Festival in Vietnam

The Mid-Autumn festival is named "Têt Trung Thu" in Vietnamese.

The main celebration is displaying flower lanterns. During the festival, there are flower lanterns displays across the country. Competitions of flower lanterns design are held and the winner will be rewarded. In some places lion dances are arranged in the evenings of 14th and 15th of the eighth month. The dances are performed by both non-professional children group and trained professional groups. Lion dance groups go to houses asking for permission to perform for them. If accepted by the host, they will perform as a wish of luck and good fortune. The host gives back lucky money in return.

Unlike the Chinese mooncakes in round shape, mooncakes in Vietnam are typically square. Read our Vietnam travel guide
