    I will be in Vietnam for NYE this year (Western NYE not Tet). I have read some posts about NYE in Saigon, but I am likely to be in central Vietnam as the full moon festival in Hoi An is on 29 December and I would like to see it.

    Does anyone know if anything happens in that region for NYE? I expect Hoi An and Hue are the most likely candidates given the number of western tourists who pass through.

    I suggest you've answered your own question. But, I think Hoi An is more oriented to NYE as it's much more party central. And, as long as it aint wet, I suggest the foreshore at D Bach Dang will be rocking!

    Cheers

    Thanks Bruce.

    I had a feeling that Hoi An may be the place to be, but I did have a fear NYE may just be totally ignored in Vietnam outside of Saigon.

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    Check out Sea Mile Club down at the beach. Spent NYE there a few years ago, we had a good time. They have a band and there's a swimming pool - people were swimming in their underwear then dancing in the club half naked and dripping wet, highly entertaining. Some people were swimming fully clothed.
