Ho Chi Minh City – A different perspective on Covid-19’s Independence Day.

The National Day (or Independence Day) is one of the most significant holidays in the Vietnamese calendar. This day September 2nd marks the day revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh declared Vietnam’s independence from France. If this is for a regular year, across the country, Vietnamese commemorate this monumental occasion with flags, cheerful festivities and fireworks at night. If you’re in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City or Da Nang, head out into the streets to join the locals in an exuberant celebration of Vietnamese patriotism and pride.

This year, the National Day could have been the quietest public holiday for Vietnam in a very long time. As the majority of residents in Ho Chi Minh City have been practicing strict social distancing over the past two months, reporter – photographer – journalist Ngo Tran Hai An “Quỷ Cốc Tử” have help us to capture life in Ho Chi Minh City from various angles.
