We can't really tlak with a lot of experience having only spent 2008 Tet in HCM and travelling through to Cambodia.
Our observations were that it was an amazing experience to be in HCM during Tet. A number of shops/restaurants etc. closed down in the days preceeding and over actual Tet. It didn't impact on our travels too much as we travelled via Sinh Cafe after leaving HCM but we wouldn't have given up on the experience for the small inconvenience!
