Vietnam has 17 public holidays in a year. The public holidays are regulated by the Ministry of Foreign affairs. Under Article 115 of this labor code; workers are to receive ten holidays in a year. The religious and historical event influences the public holidays in the country.
When a public holiday falls on a weekend, the staff is allowed to take the following day off. An employee from another country is entitled to get an extra day off to celebrate the national day for their respective country. According to the laws of the land, public holidays that occur on a Saturday or a Sunday, are automatically moved to the following Monday. This day will also be a paid day off. Workers who cannot take a day off due to the nature of their jobs are compensated and allowed to pick a day off the following week or get additional leave days if they so desired.
Business is high towards these public holiday celebrations as residents stock up with supplies. On the day of the public holiday, most of the shops are closed down only a few are left open on areas with high tourist’s accommodation. The transport is slow, but towards the evening there little to no movements in the streets as all people take the festivities to their houses. The public holidays take on a religious theme. The celebration could go for a day and at most five days. Throughout this time, the residents pray, feast and dance with colorful decoration honoring their respective Saints. The culture is vibrant and does not restrict any foreigners from participating in the celebrations.
