Tet Vietnam Motorbike tour

Tet Vietnam Motorbike tour

Vietnam Tet Fiesta motorbike tour will make you feel right at home for this Lunar New Year.

Tet is the biggest and most sacred festival in Vietnam and also the most attractive and spectacular scene for the majority of Vietnamese.

Tet falls on a time when the old year is over and the New Year arrives according to the Lunar calendar. This is also the time when the cycle of the universe finishes: winter ends and spring – the season of birth of all living things, comes.

Tet is an occasion for pilgrimages and family reunions. It is a time when one pays respect to his or her ancestors and grandparents. It is an occasion when everyone sends each other best wishes for a new year, stops thinking about unhappy things and says good things about each other.

This is our special offer from MotoTours Asia to our clients. We organize this, once a year tailor-made Lunar New Year motorcycle experience to discover the special way Tet holiday is celebrated deep in the heart of the Vietnamese countryside. You will stay with local families for a completely integrated and unique experience.  During Tet, all offices, agencies, and organizations are closed in Vietnam making it difficult to travel around but we here at MotoTours Asia will ensure all our services are available and your needs are met whilst you are with us.
