It is just a week to Tet – the most important festival of Vietnamese people. This is not only the time to show respect to ancestors, but also the time for everyone to gather. And during this time, capturing memorable moments in photos or words is likely a common act of many people. And posting such moments to facebook or other social media, a way to keep such moment for long, seems to be very popular. And to do so, it requires internet access. In addition to 3G, those in big cities who do not use 3G services have great news is that Vietnam will offer free public wifi in big cities January 20 to February 17 at various spots. These cities are Hanoi, Saigon, Da Nang, Can Tho, Nha Trang and Hai Phong.
In Saigon, complimentary WiFi access is available at Tao Dan, Gia Dinh, Le Van Tam, September 23 and Le Thi Rieng Parks as well as District 7’s Phu My Hung area and, of course, the Nguyen Hue Flower Street.
Hanoians can find free WiFi at Nghi Tam and Quang Ba flower markets as well as Buoi Market, Hang Luoc Flower Street and Lac Long Quang and Hoang Hoa Tham Streets.
Elsewhere in Vietnam, Da Nang’s WiFi covers Bach Dang and Tran Hung Dao Streets, while Can Tho has complimentary access at Ninh Kieu Wharf and Art Flower Street. Nha Trang is providing WiFi to Tran Phu and Le Thanh Ton Streets as well as Yen Phi Park, and Hai Phong’s coverage consists of Le Hong Phong, Tran Hung Dao, Tran Phu and Nguyen Van Troi Streets as well as Le Chan Flower Garden.
All are welcome to visit Vietnam during these days to experience a Tet in Vietnam. But before you go, please check your Vietnam visa to ensure your entry is not refused at any border gate of Vietnam.
