New Year Celebrations in Southern Vietnam

Where is the best place for some lively new year celebrations in Southern Vietnam? Planning a 3 week trip over Christmas and New Year starting and ending in Ho Chi Minh. We are not youngsters but enjoy a party atmosphere with fireworks etc so want to make sure we are in a good area for Christmas and New Year. Thanks

That would be in HCMC, aka Sài Gòn.

Nha Trang would also be good and you have the beach. Plenty to do day and night.

One more vote against HCMC / Saigon. Why would you want to spend your Xmas holidays in a city with 10 million people? Get out to a beach destination, much more enjoyable and relaxing. Fly to the island of Phu Quoc, go to the Muine / Phan Thiet area. Plenty more places to choose from but pls do not get stuck in HCMC / Saigon for the festive season.

Saigon would be the place with festive atmosphere for Christmas and New Year, mainly in District 1.
