The labor ministry on Tuesday confirmed that everyone in Vietnam will have seven days off in April and May.
The first long weekend to celebrate the Hung Kings' death anniversary will be from April 16-18. The main event will be on Saturday the 16th, which is the 10th day of the third lunar month. Offices and schools will stay closed for an extra day on Monday.
Less than two weeks later, there will be another long weekend, from April 30 to May 3, to celebrate the Reunification Day (April 30) and then the Labor Day (May 1).
The labor ministry said companies and offices that normally open on Saturday should follow its holiday schedule strictly and let their employees make up for the lost hours later.
