Vietnam’s Tet Lunar New Year is right around the corner, and French luxury hotel Sofitel Legend Metropole in Hanoi has exciting things laid out for the celebrations, which falls on February 8 on the calendar this year. In a three-day Cho Que, a local term meaning “country market”, the hotel will be transforming its open-air courtyard into a market-like space, with vendors dressed in traditional garb selling food, handicrafts, and colorful Dong Ho paper, enlivening the festivities for visitors. When not browsing around the market, there are a range of programs to participate in, such as a daily cooking contest, a presentation of lucky red envelopes to guests on the first day of the new year, a dragon dance, and a special Vietnamese banquet at the hotel’s restaurant, Spices Garden, where menu brimming with holiday specialties will be curated for the 12 days of Tet. Visitors can opt for a festive Tet Eve dinner at the restaurant for a price of US$103, while a buffet lunch on the day of the new year is priced at US$72. Running from January 29 to 31, the Cho Que is open for public with no entrance fee.
