Tet Holiday in Nha Trang-Where to eat vegetarian and traditional dishes?

Nha Trang during Tet holiday flaunts its exuberant – a typical joyful atmosphere of a coastal city, and are being elevated by the long-awaited springtime. The city’s energy cools off at the sight of people shifting to a slower, relaxing lane of life where localities and tourists immerse in the festivity of traditional customs such as hái lộc (to pluck a flowering branch off a tree on New Year's Day, a sign of new life and prosperity and lì xì (children receive lucky money in red envelopes in return for their wishes of happiness and prosperity to parents and elders) as well as attending either church or temple to pray for good fortune.

Tet is the season of travelling and spending quality time with family and friends, but Vietnamese women usually prepare banquets of elaborate traditional foods for the whole family. There usually are both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes to satisfy different needs and tastes.
