Does anyone know? I believe the Chinese New Year is called the Tet festival over there?
Is it a poor time to visit?

Yah, lunar New Year is known as Tet in Vietnam. If you plan to stay in the same place for 5 - 10 days, you should be alright. That said, you should still expect lots of things to be closed; it's a very important family holiday and the only time of the year that many small shops are closed.
Getting public transportation anywhere will be a nightmare. Honestly, you couldn't pay me to visit Vietnam or China during the lunar new year. It's insanely busy. I'd rethink it and try to be anywhere else during that time.
Thanks. I'll avoid Vietnam then. Target another area.
