Ho Chi Minh city prepares for fireworks to celebrate National Day

Ho Chi Minh City will organize fireworks shows at three locations to mark National Day on September 2.

They will be at the Thu Thiem Tunnel between Districts 1 and 2; the 81-storeyed Landmark 81, Vietnam's highest building; and Dam Sen Park in District 11.

The fireworks will begin at 9:00 p.m. and will last 15 minutes. Several major streets will be closed to vehicles at that time.

Fireworks performances are seen from the Landmark 81, Vietnam's highest building, in Binh Thanh District.

Fireworks, which are otherwise banned in the country, are a tradition during major national celebrations like Lunar New Year, Reunification Day on April 30 and National Day on September 2.

September 2, 1945, was when Ho Chi Minh, the founder of the Communist Party, marked the declaration of the country’s independence from the French.

Tourism authorities take advantage of this occasion to also organize street lighting shows and art performances.

HCMC received more than 4.2 million foreign tourists in the first half of this year, 10 percent up from a year ago, underlining its reputation as an increasingly popular global destination.

HCMC and Hanoi were among the world’s 100 most visited travel destinations in 2018, a recent report by Euromonitor International said.
