The way back home to celebrate Tet of the children far from home seems to be more difficult and difficult due to the stressful epidemic situation in many localities, especially the northern provinces. Many worries pile up that could affect this emotional repatriation.
Because the possibility of Covid-19 infection is still there, many people hesitate to choose to take a bus, bus or train. The representative of Mien Dong bus station (HCMC) predicts that the number of tourists returning home to celebrate Tet by bus this year will decrease, only about 59% compared to the same period last year.

Concern about whether to go home to celebrate Tet
After a difficult time of the epidemic, many small families think about not going back to their hometown to reduce costs.

In addition, provinces and cities also have different social distancing or vehicle control policies, they are afraid that the trip may be unsafe or restricted from moving between provinces. The meager amount of money saved for Tet is spent on risky expenses in the middle of the journey.
Mr. Hoang Khoi Nguyen (living in Binh Tan District, Ho Chi Minh City) has another fear. “I’m afraid of driving a motorbike for three or four days, if it’s sunny and rainy, it will affect my health, and there will be no Tet. Not to mention driving along the road with a broken tire or damaged car, the journey back to the hometown is even more remote. I said with his wife or send money back to his family,” Nguyen shared. However, Mr. Nguyen also admitted that he had not been able to visit his mother for two years. “I’m old too. Money can’t buy time with me.” – Nguyen’s eyes are sad and sad, but he still hasn’t decided whether to return to his hometown or not.

Mr. Nguyen Hoang Viet, a worker in the Vietnam – Singapore industrial park, Binh Duong shared: “My husband and I are afraid to buy bus tickets because if there is a positive passenger on the bus, sometimes the whole family has to go to isolation, everything When my wife said that I used to ride a motorbike to my hometown, I was also very passionate, but I still had to calculate a lot because of gas money, health, and safety for a few days on the road.”
Like Mr. Viet, many families also plan to choose a “trip” to their hometown with their parents and grandparents. Although the journey is long, but if it’s not too rushed, and if you drive carefully, the trip can become a trip to Tet with many beautiful memories for the small family.
