Travel warning for end of April in Vietnam

Angela recently wrote in the Saigon blog about the upcoming Reunification Day and May Day holidays (30th April and 1st May). As I sit here trying to book a last minute trip away from Hanoi for the weekend, with little luck, I thought it worth re-enforcing the points she made about travel disruption: as it stands, flights out of Hanoi to most domestic destinations (OK, I haven't checked them all) are fully booked at least for a few of the days over the weekend, and there are no trains to Lao Cai (except soft seats which are bearable but not ideal). I imagine the trains to the south are booked as well. Of course, you might find a handy travel agent who's got a few tickets up his sleeve, but my advice is to try not to have to move around too much that weekend.

How about the weekend after that? 5 May (Sat) and 6 May (Sun), should be ok right?

Yeah, that weekend looks OK. It's just a long weekend, so doesn't go on and on like Tet does.
