The Mid-Autumn Festival Sunday, September 4th, 2022 - 11:02 AM

Tet Trung Thu or the Mid-Autumn Festival as it is called in Vietnamese as we call it in other countries is a wonderful ancient festival centered around children. Tet Trung Thu in Vietnam takes place on the night of the full moon (August 14-Eighth lunar month), the most enchanting and picturesque night of the year.  If you look at the moon on this day, you will notice that its orbit is at its lowest angle to the horizon, making the moon appear brighter and larger than at any other time of the year.  So, in honor of the beautiful full moon, a festival was accompanied with a range of entertainment activities, especial  join the Mid-Autumn Festival with traditional lantern parade. The festival includes the customs of gazing at the moon, a procession of stars and moon-shaped lanterns, lion dance, and the celebration of parties with moon cakes and other cookies. At  school, they often organize music programs with songs about the mid-autumn festival and play plays about The Moon Lady- The Moon boy, then they give snack, cookies, candies for children.

 There are several explanations for this phenomenon, as well as the tradition of celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival. Some said it began in China in the early 8th century under the reign of King Duong Minh Hoang. According to ancient manuscripts, the emperor often wanted to visit the palace on the moon. Then, with the help of a wizard, he was taken to Luna and greeted by a bunch of beautiful fairies.

He expressed his admiration for her dance called Nghe Thuong Vu Y and tried to memorize it. Later he accidentally discovered that there were similarities between the styles of Nghe Thuong Vu Y and Ba La Mon. After combining the two styles of singing and dancing into one, he gradually made it known to everyone in his distant ruling lands. The tradition of gazing at the moon, dancing and singing later became a traditional event in the mid-autumn celebration. An important event before and during the Vietnamese Mid-Autumn Festival is the lion dance.

Both amateur and professional groups of children perform dances in the streets or go into houses. If the host accepts, "the lion" enters and starts dancing as a congratulation. In addition to the lion dance, it is customary to offer banh trung thu, boxes of mooncakes that traditionally have a very rich flavor. The cakes are filled with lotus seeds, pork, ground beans and orange peel and have a salted duck egg yoke representing the moon in the middle.

Mui Ne- Phan Thiết Tour Wednesday, August 17th, 2022 - 2:17 PM

 Mui Ne- Phan Thiết Tour                               

As you know, Viet Nam is a beautiful country with a lot of ecotourism. If talking about tourism in Vietnam, it is impossible not to mention the sea. With thousands of beaches spread across the provinces. Phan Thiet is a new form of tourism with many different forms of entertainment. As planed, we traveled to Phan Thiet, not far from Sai Gon, just took us 4 hours to arrive there. To go there, we can travel by train or coach but I think travel by train is the best because the air is fresh, the toilet is good and the prize is affordable. Far from Phan Thiet city about 10 kilometers is Mui Ne beach where a hundred resorts along the coast. Because we stayed there 1 day so we chose “Four Seasons Resort Beach’’, the room is not specially but it has own beach. Before go there we had luch with “com nieu’’, claypot rice is a familiar dish in Asian cuisine. With a lot of food such as roti sprim, stir-fry water spinach, eggs fried,… Next, we checked-in at the hall and took a room. We swam in the sea and took photos there, we had an experience to go around the sea by cano, which service fee is not cheap but it can made me happier when we do that. In the afternoon, we rest in the room and for dinner we came to “Bi Bo’’ restaurant to try fresh seafood there, there were a lot of different types of fish, lobsters, snails,… The price is normal for the tourists and the food is good quality and full of nutrition. That was all of the day, I had a good night. A new day started, we had buffet at the restaurant which free when we booked room. This was a heathy breakfast to have a full energy to go to the beach again, we swam here and turned home about 12 o’clock. 

Before we left this place, we went to Phan Thiet market. Phan Thiet Market is located on the Ca Ty River, right in the city center, so trading activities here are very bustling, exciting and convenient.

Cho Lon Phan Thiet is home to the largest concentration of fresh seafood in the city, especially squid. The types of squid here are extremely diverse, not only fresh but also sweeter than squid in other sea areas. In addition to fresh seafood, the market also has dried seafood and frozen seafood, serving the shopping needs of people. The price in Phan Thiet Lon market is considered reasonable, so you can rest assured to "turn around" without worrying about anything.

In addition, with friends in the food festival, you must definitely go to Phan Thiet market to "sweep" all popular shops, and enjoy Phan Thiet specialties.
