Although Saigon fell on 30 April, 1975, the official unification of North Vietnam and South Vietnam into simply Vietnam came on 2 July of the following year.

On this day, you will see the Vietnamese flag flying high all over the country. There will be a parade in Ho Chi Minh City, and many political leaders will give public speeches. Banks and government offices will shut down for the day, and many will get the day off work or school. Many tour the country during this time of year, with the tomb of Ho Chi Minh in Hanoi being the number one site to visit.

As Reunification Day comes on the day before Labour Day, it is part of a larger celebratory period.
